Police warn Superior Fire Department used in scam

Superior police are warning residents about a phone scam related to the Superior Fire Department.

Callers claim they are collecting donations for fire education in schools, and claims they are from the fire department.

The caller is convincing, according to police.

The Superior Fire Department does not authorize phone solicitations on its behalf.

According to police: The Superior Fire Department does maintain an agreement with the National Safety Council Inc. to supply fire education materials, which are distributed primarily during Fire Prevention Month in October. The NSC only directly contacts businesses within the community and 100 percent of the funds collected go toward educational materials distributed to Superior fire for its educational programs.
