BEWARE OF POTENTIAL SCAM
A company has been calling up businesses in a local jurisdiction claiming that the fire department had just enacted an ordinance that all fire extinguishers and safety lights had to be inspected by a certified company. The company then asks the business if they would like to set up a time for them to come out.
The Elburn & Countryside Fire Protection District has NOT just enacted an ordinance to that effect. Nothing has changed with our requirements for fire extinguishers, and our inspectors check your emergency lights when we complete our annual fire and life safety inspections. Please call the Elburn Fire Department at 630-365-6855 if you ever have any questions about what is required.
