It has been brought to the attention of Cherokee County Fire & Emergency Services that representatives who identify that they are raising funds for Firefighter Support Funds have been contacting departments in an effort to scam funds.
According to a representative with the Georgia Association of Fire Chiefs (GAFC), “Those representatives have been unwilling to provide details about the organization and the purpose of the donations, when asked. The group is not affiliated with any department in Georgia. This fraudulent activity has been reported to the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office.”
If you receive calls from this organization, please do not give them any information and notify either the Georgia Association of Fire Chiefs at(888) 488-4462 or the Georgia State Firefighters Association at (770) 914-7774.
