Here are the numbers you may need to know...
For emergency medical needs, please contact the City’s Dispatch by calling 911

The City is preparing for high winds and heavy rain over the next 24-48 hours as a result of hurricane Sandy. The ground is already very saturated, so more rain and heavy wind can cause trees to uproot more easily. In addition high winds will cause tree limbs to fall, and overhead power lines may be impacted during the storm.

If your power is out or you are aware of downed power lines, please call First Energy 1-800-589-3101

If you have trees or tree branches down to report:
  • During working hours 8-4:30, please call the Independence Service Dept. 216-524-9191
  • After work hours, please call the Independence Police Department 216-524-1234

Should you have flooding to report:
  • During working hours 8-4:30, please call the Independence Service Dept. 216-524-9191
  • After work hours, please call the Independence Police Department 216-524-1234
