Smoke Detectors

Stanley residents who own their own homes and do not have a working Smoke Detector are eligible to receive one free of charge. Stanley Fire Department participates in the Gaston County Smoke Detector Program. If you need someone to help install one call the Gaston County Fire Marshal's office at 704-866-3350. When you call you will need to give your name, address, and phone number.


Donations are accepted to help other families receive smoke detectors through the Gaston County Firefighters Association at:
P.O. Box 433
Dallas, NC 28034


If you rent your home, your landlord is required by law to install a properly operational smoke detector. You and / or your landlord take responsibility for maintaining the smoke detector's battery. 

If you need more information visit the Gaston County Firefighters Association website or call 704-866-3350.
