Friday, 28 May 2010 00:00Recently, the Albertson Fire Company was advised of two incidents where an individual had approached the homes of residents in the South Park area, and identified himself as a member of the Albertson Fire Company, and attempted to solicit donations.
The Albertson Fire Company would like to advise the residents of Albertson and the surrounding area that our members do not solicit donations door-to-door, nor do we solicit via telephone.
We do have an annual fund drive that is mailed to the businesses and homes within our fire protection area.
The members of the Albertson Fire Company are issued photo identification cards by the department. If any person(s) approach you, or come to your door allegedly representing the Albertson Fire Company, ask to see their identification card. Normally, any firefighter interacting with the public would be in uniform, protective gear or accompanied by an Albertson Fire Department vehicle. If you are suspicious of any individual please call the Nassau County Police Department.
The Albertson Hook and Ladder, Engine and Hose Company No. 1, Inc. has served our community for 100 years and is looking forward to serving the residents of Albertson for the foreseeable future.
