Telephone scammer claiming to be Spring Fire Department targets residents


The Spring Fire Department is warning residents to be wary of phone calls requesting money for the department.

Spring residents have reported calls in which the caller ID reads Spring Fire Department, and the caller claims the department is in need of fire trucks and equipment and offers to take a donation, according to the SFD.

SFD Chief Scott Seifert released the following statement March 28:

“It has come to my attention that an organization claiming affiliation with the Spring Fire Department is cold calling residents in our area seeking donations to purchase fire trucks and equipment.

“As the fire chief, I can assure you that the Spring Fire Department does not use a telemarketing service to seek donations over the phone. Please report any such calls to law enforcement.”
