NAFRS Fire Chief Gerry Franek said he’s received calls from community members that there’s a phone scam making the rounds. Someone with a southern accent is calling and saying they’re collecting money for NAFRS Rescue Squad. They’re asking for bank accounts, routing numbers, credit card numbers. “It’s a scam, I don’t want anyone taken advantage of”. Franek said they ARE raising funds for a Heavy Rescue Truck.
