Eastside Fire & Rescue, in accordance with the recent King County Fire Chiefs Association press release, would like to notify our community of private companies traveling door-to-door offering home safety inspections and claiming they work with, or for, the local fire department. This misrepresentation concerns us and is absolutely false. These for-profit companies are not part of, or working on behalf of, the fire department. EF&R does not solicit door-to-door. Fire department personnel visiting in a non-emergency situation, will be in uniform with a badge, a nametag, and department issued identification, which we encourage you to ask for.
Please research any solicitors before allowing them into your home or signing any contract for services.
Your safety and trust are our highest priorities.
