Stanley Volunteer Fire District

The Stanley Fire District is situated in the south east corner of Santa Fe County and is responsible for providing fire and emergency medical services to the communities of Stanley, White Lakes and the surrounding area. The Stanley Fire District is the largest district within Santa Fe County, consisting of approximately 420 square miles and is serviced out of two stations located at #30 W. Kinsell Ave and #682 NM Hyw. 472. The district assists and receives aid from other agencies including, NM State Forestry as well as several other Santa Fe County Districts.

The district continues to grow and has added new equipment and training for the volunteer staff to deliver the services necessary within the community.

 After neighbors lost their home to fire, District Chief Thomas Ulik joined the Stanley Fire Department in 2016 to help serve the citizens of the Stanley community. After graduating from the SFCFD Volunteer Fire Academy in 2017, he has served in the Stanley Fire District as a Firefighter, Fire Lieutenant, Fire Captain, and became District Chief in 2021. He is also a member of the SFCFD Technical Rescue Team.

"Joining the fire service provides opportunities to learn new skills and work with outstanding people. The Stanley fire district is geographically large, but the population density is low, making it tight-knit community. This makes serving personally gratifying, and my desire is to become a better asset to my community, the Stanley Fire District, and the Santa Fe County Fire Department."

District Chief Ulik is a retired Chiropractor, currently employed full time by a non-profit civil rights organization. He and his wife MaryAnn ranch a small cow-calf operation in Sounthern Santa Fe County.
