It’s come to our attention that someone from a company called Firehouse Promotions has called at least one Johnston business claiming to partner with the Johnston Fire Department on a fundraiser. The Johnston Fire Department and the City of Johnston are not in any way partnering with Firehouse Promotions on a fundraiser.
We are warning residents not to give them money, as there is no JFD fundraiser.
“Let me be clear. We are not currently partnering and have never partnered with Firehouse Promotions on a fundraiser,” said Fire Chief Jim Krohse.
We are asking Johnston residents and business owners who have received a call from Firehouse Promotions to please give us a call at 515-727-7781. This link <http://www.bbb.org/iowa/business-reviews/advertising-specialties/firehouse-promotions-in-moline-il-32010835/complaints> shows that the Better Business Bureau has received 20 complaints about Firehouse Promotions in just the past year.
