Over the years the Stanford Fire Department has worked very hard to provide the highest quality o f service to the people of the City of Stanford.  We have an outstanding group of firefighters who work hard and train diligently.  They take great pride in both the services they provide and in our department.  They consistently push for innovation and excellence! Our City government supports the Fire Department, and due to this reason, the Fire Department has been able to accomplish a tremendous amount of improvements within the last several years.  We look forward to our continued growth and development as a department and a viable economic factor within the city.

The most important function of any Fire Department is prevention.  Through education and inspections, we hope to prevent/reduce the occurrence of situations that produce injury, death, and destruction of property or negatively impact our environment.  Our goal is always to save lives save property and prevent damage to the environment.
