Telephone Scam Targets Spring

Spring residents have been receiving calls where the caller ID reads Spring Fire Department. The caller claims the department is in need of fire trucks and equipment and offers to take a donation.

Statement from Spring Fire Chief Scott Seifert: “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.”
