14th Annual St. Jude's Pasta Dinner

On April 17th, 2021, our Annual St. Jude's Pasta Dinner was back.

Covid made us change our plans, but did not stop us!

The dinner this year was a "Drive-Thru" and more successful than we initially thought it would be...


The West Stafford Firefighters look forward to this event every year. It is always a hard long day, but a labor of love. St. Jude's is an organization near and dear to all of us.

This year we made nearly 200 dinners. That means we made over 700 of Chief's famous meatballs, over 20 gallons of Chief's family recipe sauce and cooked just shy of 60 pounds of pasta.

But, we couldn't do it with out your support!






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.

Stay Tuned!

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.

As of this writing, we will be planning these events for mid to late September, and 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.
