Come visit the CLE and watch for the ATV
Here's how families are already benefiting from a visit to the CLE:

When we saw the Kevo lock and that our son didn't need a key to fumble with, we decided that was next on our purchase list.

I brought my daughter to the CLE to see smart plugs in action. This app can control already built in lighting in her home. We also learned about UControl Door, which can help her be independent when exiting the garage.

Three families who all have sons with Down Syndrome have purchased a home for them. Their visit to the CLE was to learn about remote monitoring supports and see what type of equipment might benefit them before they begin home modifications.
National Preparedness Month is recognized each September to promote family and community disaster and emergency planning now and throughout the year.

Here are a few actions to take now and be more prepared:
  • Make an emergency plan.
  • Sign-up for alerts and warnings; Consider signing up for Ready Cuyahoga County. This is the county's emergency notification system.
  • Have an evacuation plan.
  • Teach children what to do if they are in an emergency and away from home.
  • Check your insurance coverage.

Resources for the actions noted above and much more are available through READY.GOV .
