The City of Piqua “Piqua ALERT ” program has various methods that allow citizens to be kept up to date with City happenings. These include both Facebook and EGOV Services (including subscription/alert sign up).
Piqua SPIRIT Newsletter
The City publishes a four-page newsletter, the Piqua SPIRIT, that communicates vital information involving city business to its shareholders, its citizens. It is published quarterly and delivered to each household. It is named “The Spirit” because the people of Piqua have always demonstrated a tremendous spirit of volunteerism and community mindedness. “The Spirit” is a way to show the citizens what their city is accomplishing.

To that end, the City of Piqua is committed to help individuals, groups and organizations host special events in the community. The city has developed an online application process that helps the City and those wanting to put on special events to collaboratively identify issues and resources to ensure a successful special event.
City of Piqua Carbon Monoxide (CO) Detector Program
As a result of the recent tragic Carbon Monoxide (CO) Poisoning deaths of the three Troy children, members of the Citizens for a Better Piqua, and staff from the Piqua Fire Department and Piqua Police Department saw a critical need to advocate awareness of CO poisoning in the City of Piqua. The goal of our CO Detector Program is to provide a smoke/CO detector to Piqua residents that have an appliance in their homes that is fueled with natural gas or propane and/or has an attached garage. Residents receiving the smoke/CO detectors are also provided educational material on the signs and symptoms of CO poisoning, and the proper maintenance of the detectors. This is not a mass distribution program, but an educational program stressing the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning. Click here for more details.
