Rivermont Volunteer Fire Department New Home

21 October 2018 News


The Rivermont Volunteer Fire Department has lived with cracked walls, a condemned second floor, flooding, mold, and other issues which made life difficult for those stationed there. Chief Jeremy Greenback and Assistant Chief Joe Woodall are considering a new home for the department. The building, located at 714 Rivermont Drive was built in the 1930’s and donated to the department in 1954. On Tuesday, the Board of Supervisors approved a conditional use permit re-zoning the potential new home for the station at the corner of Stokes Airport Road and Rivermont Drive. The proposed new structure is expected to meet the stations needs for the next 50 years and cost about 5.5 million dollars, funded through the county by the New Market Tax Credit Program. The new facility will include overnight accommodations, three drive through bays, and a community meeting space, and will also serve as the Fork District’s polling location.
