Mission Statement

The officers and staff of the University Park Fire Department take pride in the services we provide to the community. This is why PRIDE is the foundation of our mission statement.

Whether you live, work, or visit the Village of University Park and require our services, we commit to provide you with the most professional service you can receive. 

We value everyone's unique character, and we will respect everyone we come in contact with as an individual. Everyone will receive the same service regardless of race, religion, gender, sexual preference, social status, or any other trait that makes an individual unique. 

We will maintain our integrity by being faithful in the discharge of our duties, honest in our words, and morally responsible in our actions. 

We will be dedicated to those we serve, the fire service, our family and friends, and to one another. 

We will educate the community on fire safety and first aid and will further our education in the latest technology in order to protect those we serve from all types of hazards, whether man-made or natural, and to continue our education in the latest pre-hospital procedures for emergency medical care.
