Bitterroot Valley Chamber of Commerce issued the following announcement on Nov. 20.
It has been brought to our attention that someone is calling residents claiming to be with the fire department and asking for donations. Please do not become a victim to this scam.
HVFD does not conduct fundraising over the phone. If you receive a phone call like this, please notify Hamilton Police or the Ravalli County Sheriff's Office. Our yearly Fund Drive mailer went out last week and has a postage paid envelope. The official address is PO Box 562, Hamilton, MT 59840.
