Our Vision

History of Development of the Rivermont Volunteer Fire Department

Five acres was donated to the Community Center by Hayward Hendrix. Initially there was a baseball diamond and a picnic area with tables on the property.

On February 12, 1954, a group of community-minded citizens met and organized the Rivermont Community Center, Inc. The purpose of this organization was to achieve a better community through group cooperation. Ray Heskett was elected President.

Open Air Burning Ban Placed In Effect For Front Royal and Warren County

Effective Monday, July 15, 2024; all open air burning throughout Front Royal/Warren County is prohibited by order of the Fire Marshal.

This action is being instituted in accordance with the Virginia Statewide Fire Prevention Code due to the extreme atmospheric and drought conditions impacting Front Royal / Warren County. This order shall remain in effect until further notice.

No person shall kindle or maintain or authorize to be kindled or maintained any open burning during this time. This prohibition includes all bonfires, ceremonial fires, camping fires, barrel fires, etc. This regulation does not include barbecue grills, smokers, or any device that emits smoke through a chimney or stack.

The Department of Fire and Rescue Services, Office of Emergency Management and the County of Warren continue to monitor these adverse conditions. The Town of Front Royal has instituted voluntary water conservation efforts for all users of the municipal water system.

Violations of the Open-Air Burn Ban may be punishable as a class 1 misdemeanor resulting confinement in jail for not more than 12 months and/or a possible fine of not more than $2,500.

Over the past several weeks, the Department of Fire and Rescue Services have responded to an increase in outside type fire incidents and multiple structure fires that originated outside of the home resulting in significant damages.

Safety tips during this dry period to reduce the chances of fire include:

• Do not discard cigarettes from moving vehicles; use ashtrays. With the conditions we have now, lit cigarettes do cause fires and can be disastrous in times of drought and high fire risk.
• When pulling off the side of the road, stay off of dry grass areas. Park vehicles so that the exhaust does not come in contact with dry grass, leaves or weeds.
• Adjust the safety chains on your trailers to ensure they don’t drag and create sparks that can cause roadside fires.
• Avoid cooking outdoors during this drought season. If you do cook, never leave barbeque grills unattended. Place your grill on concrete or your driveway away from your home or any structures. If using charcoal or wood, make sure that the fire has been extinguished by soaking it with a garden hose before disposing of the coals.
• Check lawnmowers and farm equipment for properly working spark arresters.
• Mow your lawn at least 30-50 feet away from your house and water to create defensible space.
• Cut back or remove any dry and dead landscaping plants or bushes around your home. Clear leaves from your roof and gutters; rake them away from the sides of your home.
• Move anything that will burn far away from structures, items like firewood, compost piles, brush piles, etc.
• Notify the electric company when dead trees or overhanging limbs endanger the electric wires.
