The Pride of the West Side is turning 75!

The 44 House will be celebrating 


Years of Service

From our humble beginnings in a barn in 1946, to the modern progressive fire department in 2021...

We will always be here, to protect your life and property.

Please join us in celebrating this milestone! We will be hosting festivities for the whole family at the station on July 24th!

Stay tuned here and on our social media for more details!





From The Chief:

For all our friends and followers, 2021 is the 75th Anniversary of the 44 House, as well as the 20th Anniversary of 9-11.

We currently have committees working to commemorate these events, and the scope of these events will, of course, be dictated by the Covid-19 Pandemic.

We hope that the pandemic will be abated to the point so as to allow us to proceed and commemorate these events.

Updates will be posted here, as well as our social media.


2020 Activity Report

For 2020, the West Stafford Fire Department responded to 1019 calls for service.

The calls were divided into approximately 65% EMS and 35% Fire/Rescue incidents

It is quite likely that our call volume would have been significantly higher had it not been for a large number of people not calling for assistance due to the Covid-19 Pandemic.

This equates to an average of 2.8 calls a day.
