Letter From The Chief


My name is Darrell Stamper and I am humbled and honored to serve as the Fire Chief of the Westland Fire Department. I would like to personally welcome you to the official Westland Fire Department page.

Thank you for taking the time to visit the homepage of Westland’s Bravest. This site is designed to provide an overview of our operations, a forum for fire and life safety education, and to allow those we serve to provide crucial feedback pertaining to our services.

Our mission is to be nice, be safe, and provide exceptional service to those that live in or are visiting our community. Our professional firefighters accomplish this through our core values of Professionalism, Respect, Integrity, Dedication, and Exceptionalism. Our goal has always been, and remains to be…to provide the highest level of service to everyone we encounter. Through Fire Suppression efforts, Emergency Medical Service, Fire Prevention, and Life Safety Education, we remain committed to this goal.

We will continue to look for ways to remain progressive, and for ways to better serve the City of Westland. We have several new programs planned for this year and I look forward to sharing them with you as they are implemented. Please continue to check this page for updates.

I invite you to reach out to me with any comments, questions or concerns.

I thank you for your continued support of the Fire Department.
