The Better Business Bureau of Central California in Partnership with the Kern County Fire Department hold Fire Extinguisher Safety Seminar,
“Extinguish Your Fears About Fire Inspection Fraud”
July 11, 2012- The Central California Better Business Bureau in partnership with the Kern County Fire Department wishes to advise business owners of a serious issue that is going on through our state including our county.
Fraudulent fire extinguisher technicians and inspectors are enticing businesses into signing documents that are used to bill the owners. These companies are claiming that they have serviced portable fire extinguishers, fire alarm systems and automatic fire protection systems correctly when in many cases they have not. They are also posing as fire department inspectors, intimidating businesses and using hostile tactics to have quarterly and annual services rendered. In all actuality, the fire department has no affiliation with these companies. Many companies are swapping fire extinguishers, which is illegal, and swapping tags while charging for services not rendered.
The BBB and Kern County Fire Department will be hosting a FREE seminar on how to detect and protect you from this type of scam.
WHEN: Wednesday, August 15, 2012
WHERE: University of Laverne
1201 24th Street, 2nd Floor
