The Corvias team would like to thank our residents for making Fort Riley such a great place to live and work. We are thankful to be able to serve your housing needs and that you have chosen to live on Fort Riley.

School is out and summer is finally here! This is the time for baseball games, cook outs, family gatherings, and playing hide & seek! Here are some safety tips to help keep you and your family safe this summer:
- The weather is beautiful outside – the days are longer which means more time to play outdoors. Please ensure that you are familiar with the installation child supervision policy. This policy is in place to ensure the safety of the children of the community.
- The summer time temperatures can reach a real feel of over a 100, in a locked car, that temperature is much higher. Do not leave a child or an animal in a vehicle. If you see a child or pet in a locked car, please remember to call 911 for assistance.
- Pools – only wading pools 12” in height or less, are allowed in the backyard and must be supervised while in use. Pools should be emptied out daily and turned over when not in use for safety purposes. Still water will attract pesky mosquitos.
- Grills – we love the taste of freshly grilled hamburgers – please remember to use your grill in the back of your home and keep it 10 feet away when in use.
- Landscaping – please check to see what day your street is scheduled to be mowed so that you can ensure that your yard is ready. Keeping your grass mowed will help reduce insects in your yard during the hot summer months.
- Lock your doors when not at home even if you are right next door, at the park, at the pool, will be right back, etc. – PLEASE lock your door. For security purposes our maintenance technicians will not enter an “unlocked” home when responding to a routine work order. Also, make sure that you secure your car and do not leave valuables in your vehicle.
- Pets – please take care and control all pets in a manner which is harmonious with the community. Fort Riley only allows 3 pets per household and all pets need to be registered with Community Center.
To ensure you and your family (to include your four legged fur babies) are staying hydrated and know the warning signs: Beat the Heat
Hydrate to make sure that you are drinking plenty of water to reframe from becoming dehydrated.
Educate yourself on being exposed to excessive heat. Please check the weather reports for heat index and watch for the warning signs.
Attentive seek medical attention if you show signs of dizziness, nausea, vomiting, cramping, or increase in heart rate.
Temperature will cause heat overexertion. Stay in air conditioning or shaded areas. Take hourly breaks especially if you are working outdoors or exercising.
Summer time is a great time to build wonderful memories. We care for our residents and we want you to be safe this summer!! If you have any additional questions, please feel free to reach out to your Community Center.
If a PCS is in your future we want to let you know more about our “surface clean” requirement for homes at the time of move out. The surface-clean requirement is designed to ease the “check-out” process for military families and eliminate “white glove” inspections. It is no longer necessary to hire a cleaning team to achieve the level of cleanliness considered acceptable for move out. If you would like to hire a cleaner or cleaning team please feel free to do so, but it is not necessary.
Surface-clean condition implies that a home is left clean throughout. When a home is cleaned regularly, it should only require a wipe down and sweep/vacuum at move-out to deliver surface-clean condition. In detail, this means that the appliances, cabinets (inside and out), counter tops and windowsills should be wiped down with a cleaning solution and then with clear water. In addition, the floors should be cleaned with the appropriate solution to remove dirt and grime. Carpeted floors should be vacuumed. All personal items and trash need to be removed from the house. If you have specific questions or concerns, your Community Office team can walk you through the process.
Beginning June 19th, we will begin spraying for mosquitoes in family housing areas. Spraying will continue through Friday, June 30th, as weather permits. A Corvias contractor will be treating areas with stagnant water, dense vegetation and tree lines. Residents are asked to stay away from these areas while the technician is spraying and until the application material has dried - about 30 minutes. Residents with any questions or concerns should call their Community Office.
This year the Colyer Forsyth, Warner Peterson, and Ellis pools will open on May 27th.
Due to unforeseen equipment and filtration issues the McClellan Pool will open on or about June 9th (barring any unforeseen construction delays). While we understand this may be an inconvenience the work completed will improve water quality and filtration throughout the swimming season ultimately ensuring a better long term aquatic experience.
We appreciate your patience and will work diligently to open the McClellan Pool as quickly as possible.
In the meantime if you are a McClellan resident feel free to utilize any of the other pools that will be open and operational per the standard operating scheduled.
The pool schedule can be found on your community calendar.
If you have any questions please reach out to your community office.
Keep curtains and shades closed to help keep sunlight out. The sun can increase the temperature in a room by several degrees.
