STANLEY––He is a man of rare courage.

He is Stanley Police Department Officer Matthew Curfman. And in recognition of his bravery in rescuing victims of a recent housefire, Curfman was honored with an official commendation by the Stanley Town Council during a special presentation at the group’s regular Monday meeting.

Among those extolling Curfman were Stanley Police Department Chief Derek Summey and Mayor Steven Denton. On Wednesday, Denton told The Herald more about this remarkable officer.

“I cannot thank Officer Curfman enough for his heroic efforts in saving the lives of those individuals caught in the housefire,” he said. “His bravery and the actions of the other first responders is why we refer to them as heroes. We are blessed to have an officer like Matthew Curfman on the Stanley Police Department!”
