Sandy Hook Volunteer Fire & Rescue Company does not solicit donations over the phone.

It has come to our attention that residents of Fairfield County, including many in Sandy Hook and Newtown, have received calls in recent weeks from people claiming to represent their local volunteer fire company. If you receive such a call — especially if the person says they are a member of our company, or calling on behalf of this company — it is a phishing call.

Please do not give them any of your personal information. Try to make note of the phone number the person is calling from, and what your Caller ID says the person’s name or organization is, and then hang up. Contact Newtown Police (203-270-4255) or Connecticut Better Business Bureau (860-740-4500 or bbb.org/Connecticut) and report what happened.

Sandy Hook will begin its annual fund drive soon. Those who live within our district should receive a letter from us within the next few weeks, asking you to consider a tax-deductible donation to our company. In late July or early August, we will be doing our annual door-to-door appeal. Our members will be wearing shirts with our company logo as well as photo ID tags when they visit homes and businesses within Sandy Hook at that time.


Thank you,
