Stafford Volunteer Fireman's Association Established 1962  

Stafford VFD was organized in 1962 with a borrowed pumper and stored in a member's backyard. My original source of information when I first joined Co.2 in the mid 1970's was an amazing local and well known resident, S.K.Young. His name is one of many that contributed to the
start and the legacy of what is now one of the busiest and well thought of Fire Departments
inside and beyond the borders of Stafford County.

As Company 2 began its growth, S.K. provided the land next door to his family property in order
to construct the brick and block structure now referred to as Company 2 . With the very special support of the Ladies of the Womens' Auxilliary, a mortgage was secured and the funding provided to build that structure that is still the mainstay of the building being utilized today.

Often referred to as the Courthouse Department, or the Department across from the County
Courthouse, this organization has worked steadfastly to provide emergency services and stability in the county's Fire Service for decades. In the early 1980's, the organization adopted a statement of purpose that is now proudly reflected on its apparatus: “Dedicated 2 Excellence.”

Since Company 2 was first manned and equipped, its apparatus has run the continuum of FMC
Pumpers, a 2500 gal. Tanker, a Mini-Attack Pumper, a Re-Habbed American Lafrance Tractor-Drawn Ladder, Western Star twin Pumpers, a Re-Habbed Seagrave 100' Rear-Mount Ladder Truck, and now 2 Pierce Pumpers and a Pierce 105' Ladder. Of course no accounting of the apparatus history of a community Fire Department would be incomplete without the lists of homemade brush vehicles and other support apparatus. Hopefully, in future updates of this site, we might be able to focus on the various pieces and their tales of adventure and misadventure: tales of backyard mechanics and all-night in-station repair jobs as numerous well-known members crawled in through the pump panels to wire together various “temporary/permanent “ repairs to keep us in service
.

Finally, but perhaps most importantly, are the stories of the individuals that run the calls.  The list is a long and reflective one of the families that lived and grew up in Stafford County whose legacy includes younger generations carrying on their commitment to their community and their “Dedication 2 Excellence.”
