To kick off the new working relationship between the community of University Heights and the Iowa City Fire Department (ICFD), the department is hosting an open house at Fire Station 2 at 301 Emerald Street on Saturday, July 2, 2016. Residents of University Heights and the surrounding area are invited to stop by between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. for a station tour, overview of firefighting equipment, public education materials, and a glass of lemonade.

Beginning July 1, 2016, ICFD will assume emergency response duties for the University Heights community. Those responsibilities were previously contracted with the City of Coralville.
