Linden Volunteer Fire Department
The Linden Volunteer Fire Department was formed in 1990 by a local group of citizens concerned with the increased response time for service that was originally provided by the Front Royal Volunteer Fire Department on the eastern end of Warren County. The station originally opened in warehouse space graciously provided by a local business and through fundraising efforts and county appropriations, developed into the department that exists today. The mission of the Linden Volunteer Fire Department is to provide the utmost sense of security and well-being to citizens, visitors, travelers, property owners, and businesses through programs aimed at education, fire suppression, and emergency medical services wherever and whenever needed.
In addition to a membership of 27 volunteers, Warren County Fire & Rescue career personnel staff the station 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. LVFD has a variety of volunteer opportunities available, ranging from administrative positions to emergency responders. Individuals as young as age 14 are welcome to apply for membership. LVFD hosts a variety of fundraisers each year, including boot drives, breakfasts with Santa and the Easter Bunny, and ice cream socials. In the spring of 2016, they kicked off their first annual Ridin’ for Ron motorcycle ride to honor the memory of founding member Chief Ron Peregoy, who passed away in 2015.
