In Case You Missed This, Here Are Four Free Ways To Make Your Ward 9 Senior Life Safer...
NOPEC DO NOT KNOCK PROGRAM
Seniors rushing to respond to someone at their door, increases the chance to trip and fall. Finding a solicitor at the door adds frustration. Here’s an easy fix. An Ohio fuel supplier, NOPEC, offers a free Do Not Knock Program that blocks all but non-profit organizations from knocking. Register online at blocktheknock.com or at the link on the City of Parma website’s main page. Enrollment assistance is also available from my Council Office at 1-440-885-8091.
How will a door-to-door solicitor know not to come to my house?
- Solicitors must request a permit to sell door-to-door. They will receive a Do Not Knock Registry listing showing the restricted addresses. You will also receive a Do Not Knock window cling.
What should I do if a solicitor still knocks on my door?
- Don’t open the door if you feel unsafe; request identification to be presented through a window or doorbell camera.
If you feel the solicitor is in violation of the Do Not Knock Registry, report them to your local government or city hall.
Never, ever give anyone a copy of your utility bill or any personal information.
What is done with the information that I provide when signing up?
- Your address is listed on the Do Not Knock registry. Your contact information may be used to notify you when it is time to update your Do Not Knock Registry information. NOPEC will not sell your information to any third party.
- What happens after I sign up?
- NOPEC provides updated lists monthly to solicitors. Your name will appear on the Do Not Knock Registry within 30 days. If you signed up online, you should receive your window cling in the mail within 2 to 4 weeks.
- Can I opt out of the registry before my initial registration period ends? How?
- Yes. You can have your name removed from the Do Not Knock Registry at any time by submitting a Notice of Removal at blocktheknock.com.
READYNOTIFY (CODE RED)
ReadyNotify is a FREE emergency notification system used by Cuyahoga County and participating municipalities to issue notifications to the public. Ward 9 seniors may register at readynotify.us or the link on City of Parma website’s main page. Enrollment assistance is also available from my Council Office.
FREE GUN LOCK PROGRAM
Provided free in partnership with the National Shooting Sports Foundation’s Project Childsafe. When used, this device makes a gun inoperable. These are available at the Parma City Council office in a kit that includes a safety curriculum. Gunlock model may differ from that shown.
FREE PAPER SHREDDING EVENT in the parking lot of Parma Armory Shooting Center, 5301 Hauserman Road, Parma, on September 24th from 10 am to 2 pm. Unloading assistance will be available to make it easy to safely get rid of all those confidential paper files you’ve saved for far too long. This helps prevent identity theft or fraud and promotes clean recycling because shredded paper bypasses the landfill.
