The Mansfield Fire Department recently received crucial equipment updates, including new self-contained breathing apparatuses.
The department received five new masks, five new Drager tanks and five packs. The SCBA’s are breathing devices worn by rescue workers, firefighters, and others to provide breathable air in an immediately dangerous to life or health atmosphere.
Mansfield Mayor Buddy Black and Fire Chief Stephen Haysmer are looking at ways to continue upgrading and improving the department.
