FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Contact: Herb Griffin, 760-839-5400

 

The Escondido Fire Department advises local businesses to be aware of a scam involving bogus fire inspectors.    Individuals are showing up at local businesses and claiming that the Fire Department sent them. They then walk around the premises for a visual inspection  and  give a bill to the business as they are completing the "inspection".   Actual inspections by the Escondido Fire Department are conducted by the agency’s uniformed personnel.  If there is a fee involved, the invoice will come from the City of Escondido.

If you think an inspection may be a scam, please call Escondido Fire Department at 760-839-5400.
