Local businesses continue to receive calls from an organization that implies it is raising funds for the Roseville Fire Department. However, Roseville is not involved with this arrangement and is not receiving support from the Fire Safety Magnet Company.
The business says it has been contacted by the fire department to produce dry erase memo boards with fire safety information. This is not the case.
When reviewing the Fire Safety Magnet Company website, it states that fire departments “benefit by providing critical safety information to the community…..” We did a little research and found that the business is not BBB accredited.
Roseville thanks local businesses for being alert to the possibility of fraud. They called the Fire Department asking if the city was taking part in this fundraising effort.
If you get a call from someone asking for donations, be cautious. We encourage you to collect information about the organization and then confirm that the information that they are telling you is true before you make a donation.
