Don't Fall For It

Some of you may get phone calls asking for donations for Phoenix Police or Phoenix Fire. These are not legitimate! If you want to know how to donate to benefit officers or fire fighters contact the departments directly and they will be able to tell you but don't fall for a phone scam!
