  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-seven years.Terry A. Pettit, Chief.


Our new Engine arrived on Saturday, September 16th. The engine was purchased from the Foscoe Fire Department near Boone, North Carolina with a grant/loan from Rural Development. The engine is the departments first four wheel drive engine and will enhance the departments ability to respond to the many residents located in the mountains around Stanley and also during ice and snow storms.  Special thanks to Donnie Gochenour for going to North Carolina and hauling it back for us.   
Special thanks to Chris Louderback and Louderback's Implement for the donation of  a much needed  weed eater to the Stanley Fire Department.



Next Chicken Bar-B Que will be on September 16th 


Stanley firefighters responded to a garage fire on River Road, Monday, August 28th and were able to bring it under control in about five minutes.
