Fire & Emergency Services
The Town of Mansfield, located in the northeast hills of Connecticut, is home to approximately 23,000 people. Located within its boundaries is Storrs, home of the University of Connecticut. The Mansfield Fire Department consists of 3 fire stations to cover 45 square miles of mixed urban and rural developments. We are a combination department, employing 20+ full time and part time firefighter/EMT’s, and supported by an additional volunteer staff of men and women dedicated to serving their community. While the department was officially founded in 2005, we are the final combination of the Eagleville Fire Department and the Mansfield Volunteer Fire Company which have been serving the community since the 1930’s.
