  • Fort Leavenworth Frontier Heritage Communities
    One of the many benefits to residents of Fort Leavenworth Frontier Heritage Communities is the presence of a responsive 24-hour maintenance staff. Although it is a valuable asset to the community, saving both time and money for residents, it is important to understand that calls placed to the Maintenance Department outside of the normal business hours of 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday should be for emergency requests only.
    Urgent or emergency service requests should only be made when the situation creates an imminent danger to residents or risks serious damage to property after hours or on the weekends. Examples include an electrical power outage, loss of heating in the winter or cooling in the summer, or extensive flooding in a basement.
    In addition to regularly offered services, the Maintenance Department also provides self-help items for the convenience of residents at a minimal cost. In addition to items for sale, furnace filters are available at no cost. Self-help items may be purchased at the Maintenance Warehouse at 800 W. Warehouse Road, near the horse stables. Also, residents are asked to complete and return the maintenance survey that accompanies each work order receipt. Resident feedback helps FLFHC provide the best service to residents.
