Whitman Fire Department Warns Residents of Fundraiser Scam Calls

WHITMAN — Fire Chief Timothy J. Grenno would like to inform residents of scam calls Whitman residents have reported receiving. 

The department has been made aware of residents in town who have gotten calls regarding a purported annual firefighter fundraiser being put on by the Whitman Fire Department. 

The Whitman Fire Department is not doing any telemarketing fundraising at this time.

“We are not making any calls relating to fundraising, and residents should consider any such calls as scams,” Chief Grenno said. “Residents should not make donations to these callers and should not provide any personal information to people posing as members of the Whitman Fire Department.”
