Adopt a Fire Hydrant

A house fire can double in size every minute. 

Every second counts. With your help, firefighters won’t have to spend crucial time locating and digging out buried hydrants. 

Firefighters need at least three feet kept clear around the hydrant, and access from the street to the hydrant. UHPD Officer Brinkema has done a tremendous job digging out hydrants as a service to our community. You can help. 

Adopt a fire hydrant and keep it cleared of snow. 

There may be a hydrant near your property, or take a look at the hydrant map (PDF) to locate hydrants throughout town. 

The City greatly appreciates your help keeping University Heights fire hydrants clear.
