The mission of the University Heights Fire Department is to protect life and property.
Twenty-seven firefighters serve the City of University Heights as paramedics and emergency medical technicians. Fire Department personnel staff two paramedic-equipped rescue squads and serve under the medical control and license of an Emergency Room physician.
If a fire, hazardous material incident or other disaster arise where additional manpower or equipment is needed, prearranged agreements with neighboring cities and the county-wide Mutual Aid Box Alarm System enable the Fire Department staff to rely on additional resources in handling major emergencies.
Fire Department staff perform carbon-monoxide testing, fire prevention planning and consultations, code compliance inspections and a wide range of public education, including fire safety demonstrations. Fire Department staff members will provide smoke detectors as needed, change the batteries for elderly or disabled residents, and install or perform safety checks for child seats.
The Fire Department sponsors a Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) of fire personnel and volunteer residents of the City of University Heights.
