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
