  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-eight years.Terry A. Pettit, Chief.




Many thanks to the three Santa’s and their elves who made this year’s “Santa on a fire truck” visits a huge success especially to over the hundred children who waited at their doors and outside in the cold to see him. And from all at the Stanley Fire Department Merry Christmas

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.
