Glendale dedicated another fire hydrant to a fallen public servant.
The Glendale Fire and Police Departments gathered along with the family of Sergeant Patrick Campbell at 47th Avenue and Augusta Avenue to dedicate a blue hydrant to Campbell, who died as a result of injuries he sustained after a man intentionally set out to hurt a police officer.
On Sept. 6, 1980 Campbell’s patrol vehicle was struck by a suspect fleeing from police. He went through 15 months of recovery before returning to duty. On Sept. 22, 1985 he died from complications developed from the original incident.
