Our History

Protecting You & Your Family

Located in the Uncasville section of the Town of Montville, the Mohegan Fire Company Inc. was organized, and chartered by the State of Connecticut in 1946. The fire company was organized by a handful of civic minded men with the fundamental purpose of an “organization for fire suppression services. Prior to that, fire protection in the area had been provided by the Montville Fire Company, with frequent assistance from Norwich.

In 1946 the fire company came into existence with a 1931 Chevrolet pickup that was donated by one of the members, housed in a garage behind the Shantok Service Station.

 

With the purchase of a 1922 Maxim Pumper it became necessary to build larger accommodations. A new fire house was built on Norwich New London Turnpike, where the current Route 2A interchange is. The new station was build by the members, with limited funds.

 

In 1952 we purchased a 19__ Packard Ambulance from the U.S. Navy and established and Ambulance Service for the benefit of the community.

 

In 1953 the people of Montville realized Mohegan Fire Company was here to stay and voted the necessary funds to purchase a 500 gallon per minute 1953 Ford Maxim Pumper. This was the fire company’s first brand new piece of apparatus.

 

In 1955 the Women’s Auxiliary was formed…….

 

In 1966 as the membership increased and facing the State of Connecticut’s acquisition of our property, it was again necessary to move and build a larger fire house. The fire company acquired a piece of land on the corner of Norwich New London Turnpike and Occum Lane, donated by a member upon which our new permanent home was to be built. Lacking sufficient funds to build the new station, the company initiated our first drive for funds and through the generosity of the community we were able to start the construction of our present station.
