Freedom of Information Act – Requests

Virginia Freedom of Information Act

Virginia Freedom of Information Advisory Council

FOIA requests which pertain to the retrieval of documents or records are processed by the Office of Professional Standards of the Warrenton Volunteer Fire Company. These requests can be submitted to the WVFC in person, by mail or in email form. FOIA requests will be accepted from any citizen of the Commonwealth of Virginia, any representative of print media with a publication in the state and any representative of television or radio media broadcasting in or into the state.

FOIA requests should be as detailed as reasonably possible and outline the specific information and/or records you are seeking to obtain. The WVFC is not required to make a new record in response to any FOIA request. Requests in written or email form will be accepted and forwarded for processing when received Monday through Friday (except holidays) during normal business hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Please note there are requirements which are necessary in order to submit a request and certain records which may be exempt under Virginia FOIA. A link to the Virginia Freedom of Information Act is provided above which provides additional information on these exemptions and requirements. The WVFC is also allowed to charge a reasonable cost associated with Virginia FOIA requests and the payment may be required before the request is fulfilled.
