Scammers Targeting the Area Using Mt. Juliet Fire Department’s Name

Mt. Juliet, Tenn. – Mt. Juliet Police want to ensure the community is aware of a scam that is going around using the name of the Fire Department of Mt. Juliet (FDMJ). The scammers are calling individuals and businesses, stating that they are raising money for the FDMJ through a benefit concert. This is certainly not the case, and the fire department is not involved in any current fundraising activities.

FDMJ Command Staff reached out to the Mt. Juliet Police Department regarding the scam after local residents reached out to the fire department inquiring about the false fundraising effort. FDMJ never seeks donations over the phone.

If anyone has any questions or wants to learn how they can properly contribute to the fire department, they can be reached at (615) 773-9830 (non-emergency).
