  Mission Statement

Welcome to the Stanley Volunteer Fire Departments website. Since 1948 the department has strived to provide the best service possible to maintain our goal of Saving Life and Property. The all volunteer fire department provides 24 hour fire and EMS protection along with public education with our most valuable asset, the many dedicated volunteers who give large amounts of time and energy on every call. It gives me great pride to have served as Chief of this department for the past thirty-five years.Terry A. Pettit, Chief




Stanley firefighter's recently trained on search and rescue techniques using an abandoned house. They were joined by a crew from Shenandoah CO-70.  














Stanley firefighters responded to a large trash fire Tuesday afternoon at Recycle Management on US Hwy 340 Business West. Water was pumped from the Shenandoah River nearby for over an hour. The fire was finally extinguished when a foam unit from Merck Company arrived.  The Luray Fire Dept., Shenandoah Fire Dept., Stanley Rescue Squad, Page County EMS also responded along with Virginia Emergency Services. Crews were on the scene about four hours. 




Members of the Stanley Fire Department and newly formed Auxiliary recently held a surprise dinner for Dixie Gray. Dixie, has been an associate member since 2001 and was granted Life Membership by the department members. Chief Terry A. Pettit reported that Dixie has been doing the cooking for most of the activities since joining and has been working closely with the auxiliary for the past year preparing them to take over his duties. Chief Pettit also stated that Dixie has been a huge asset to the department and will be missed however, Mr.. Gray remarked that even though he is giving up his duties for now he will still be around to lend a helping hand when needed.
