To The Daily Sun,
We have recently been notified that once again someone is calling residents of the city and saying they are collecting money for the Fire Department. When asked they stated the money would go to the Laconia Fire Department directly. At this time Laconia Fire Department is NOT running any type of phone-based fundraiser.
If you are contacted by anyone saying they are collecting money for “the Fire Department” or using Laconia Fire Department’s name to solicit money, please reach out to us before sending any. This could happen any time of year, but unfortunately seems to increase just before the holidays.
If you have questions, or receive a call like this, please reach out to us at 524-6881.
Laconia Fire Chief
