The Shaker Pines Fire Department was established in 1942; and was formerly known as the Shaker Pines Lake Association Fire Department. Today’s fire department is a cooperation of career and predominantly volunteer members. The Shaker Pines Fire Department, Enfield’s Fire District #5, covers approximately 6 square miles of the northeastern part of town. The district’s borders to the East and West are Somers, CT and a combination of Washington Road and North Maple Street respectively. To the North and South are Massachusetts and Moody Road respectively. Members of the department are continually training year round to stay up to date on the latest techniques in the fire service.
The Shaker Pines Fire Department is appreciative to Hallmark Cards for their donation of the six acres of land that the station currently sits on near the intersection of Shaker Road and Bacon Road. With the support of a strong community of firefighter’s throughout the town, Enfield residents can place their minds at ease knowing that they are protected by such a fine group of dedicated professionals.
