There is a new alerting system in Fauquier County. Alert Fauquier, powered by Rave Mobile Security, will send you the alerts in case of emergencies. These can range from weather alerts to community developments, such as a look out or lock down.

Please use the following link to register/log in: https://www.smart911.com/smart911/ref/reg.action?pa=fauquier. From here you can select the types of alerts you would like to receive and how you would like to receive them. It can be by phone, email, or text.

If you have any questions, please call 540-422-8830. Leave a message for call back if no one is available and Alert Fauquier will return your call as soon as possible.


Crowd Managers at Large Gatherings

To better ensure the health and safety of the citizens and visitors of Fauquier County, the Statewide Fire Prevention Code (SFPC) was adopted and incorporated in Chapter 9 of the Fauquier County Code. It, along with all Fauquier County Codes and Ordinances, will be adhered to.

We ask that organized events follow these codes - including section 403.12.3 Crowd Managers which states in part:

403.12.3 Crowd Managers. Where facilities or events involve a gathering of more than 500 people, crowd managers shall be provided in accordance with Sections 403.12.3.1 through 403.12.3.3.

For a full reading of the SFPC section 403.12.3.1 through 403.12.3.3 visit to the following web page:

Plan Ahead for Disasters

Get #SummerReady!

#SummerReady aims to reach vulnerable populations and boost awareness of the impacts of extreme heat and the simple steps to prepare. 


Take Simple Steps

Fans alone aren’t enough in high heat + high humidity. Get inside in air conditioning or go to a public place like the library, museum, or shopping mall to beat the heat. 

NEVER leave children or pets alone in hot vehicles! Heat can rise in a car, up to 20 degrees in just 10 minutes. 

During extreme heat, check on family, friends, and neighbors who do not have air conditioning and who spend much of their time alone. 

Roughly 40% of unwanted heat buildup in our homes is through windows. Use awnings or curtains to keep the heat out. 

Use your oven less during extreme heat advisories and warnings so you don’t make your house hotter. 

Learn the signs of heat-related illnesses and ways to respond, from the CDC
