The Toledo fire department is asking citizens to report calls from people claiming to be soliciting money for firefighters to go to schools to educate children about fire safety.
The department recently was informed about the illegitimate calls. It does not solicit donations by telephone or any other means for firefighters to provide fire safety education to school children, fire authorities said.
The Better Business Bureau has been advised about the calls. Citizens are asked to get a name, an address, or a phone number so they can report the calls to the Better Business Bureau.
