Fire Danger Today:

Urgent Public Service Announcement
July 11, 2018

It has come to our attention that there is a telemarketing scam occurring in our area. These individuals are claiming to be members of the Meredith Fire Department and are asking for monetary donations. They have threatened to “take action” if a donation is not made.

The Meredith Fire Department does NOT solicit donations over the phone!!!

While our non-profit association, the Wamesit Engine Companies, holds fundraisers throughout the year, we are not currently conducting a fundraiser.

Should you receive a phone call from someone representing themselves as a member of the Meredith Fire Department, please DO NOT give your financial information the caller.

Thank you for your understanding and we apologize for any inconvenience these people may have caused. If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us at (603) 279-6061 or the Meredith Police Depatment.
