Founded in 1934 the Oakland Mapleville Fire District is located at 46 Oakland School St., Oakland, RI. in the Town of Burrillville, which is in the northwestern portion of the State of Rhode Island, where the states of Rhode Island, Connecticut and Massachusetts converge. It is chartered by the State of Rhode Island to provide fire protection and emergency medical services. It encompasses an area of approximately thirteen square miles with a resident population of approximately 4,400 according to 2010 census data. The Oakland Mapleville Fire District provides services to the residents of the Fire District and neighboring communities in the Tri-State Area.

The fire station receives no funds from the Town of Burrillville or the State of Rhode Island. All expenses are paid by the Fire Tax, third party rescue billing, various grants and donations. The Oakland Mapleville Fire District Board oversees the operations.
