A devastating fire struck Stanton Iowa on August 16, 1888. One half of the business
portion of the town lay in ashes. The flames spread so rapidly that the entire row of
buildings at the north end of the business area to the east and west main street
of the town, was destroyed in about forty minutes. No record can be found of any
attempt to organize a fire department in Stanton until five years later.
The first equipment purchased was a dozen fiber pails in February of 1893 for $12.00.

The Constitution for the Stanton Fire Department was adopted on November 4, 1907.

The Stanton Fire and Rescue website has great
documentation of their history for both fire and ems.
Make sure you spend some time on the "History"
pages when you visit their site.
In February of 1990 several Fire and Rescue Department members
met to discuss the possibility of building an economical and practical
building which could function as a fire department and a community room.
The building was to be an all steel structured building measuring
60'x 120'. The building would consist of five fire bays to house
the trucks, a 30'x 30' fire department meeting room,
a 30'x 60' community room, kitchen, restrooms, and an office for the
City Clerk and the Fire Chief. ....On July 7, 1990 a. 5:30 A.M, there
were over forty volunteers at the site to help pour the concrete floor.
It is obvious that the Stanton Fire Station exists because of the efforts put forth by
the community and volunteers to provide support for the project, and then to actually build it.
