Established in 1794, the Springfield Fire Department is one of the oldest fire departments in the country. The Department provides professional response to all fires, explosions, medical emergencies, and hazardous materials incidents.

The Springfield Fire Department reviews all apparatus after ten years of front line duty and, at that point, they are evaluated for rotation into reserve status.
