Stallings Volunteer Fire Department has been serving the needs of our community since it was organized and incorporated on July 19th 1954 by Stallings residents E.E. Austin, Oliver Duckworth, Herbert W Fincher, G. Ira Broome, Carl Stallings and I.S. Noles.
The Stallings Volunteer Fire Dept was one of the 1st in Union County and has continued to grow to it’s current size of approximately 50 members under the direction of Chief Charlie Porter, Deputy Chief Bryan Kindley and the Board of Directors.
Stallings Fire Dept started in a small building near the intersection of Old Monroe Rd and Potter Rd. In 1970, a larger facility was built and remained the headquarters until 2002 when it was moved to it’s current location at 4616 Old Monroe Rd. The current facility is 14,000 sq ft with 10 bays, a full kitchen, training room, offices and sleeping quarters. While still maintaining room for future growth.
The department started with 1 truck in 1954 and currently maintains 7 vehicles to service the community including three engines, a ladder truck, squad truck, a brush unit and a quick response vehicle.
