City warns of fire inspection scams

The Salinas Fire Department wants business owners to beware of fraudulent fire inspections and services for sprinklers, alarm systems, portable fire extinguishers, exit signs, emergency lights, and exit surveys. Businesses in the city have been victimized by individuals claiming to have been sent by the "Fire Marshal" or "Fire Department" or "Fire Inspector" to conduct inspection and/or services. Periodic fire inspections are conducted by Salinas Fire Department personnel who wear badges or carry fire department identification cards, and drive government (E license plate) vehicles. Legitimate companies will typically provide a proposal and draw up a contract for services. If you have reason to doubt that the inspection being conducted is not by a city employee, or that the fire protection or fire safety service company is not a legitimate company do not hesitate to call us at 831‐758‐7261 to confirm.

The Chamber said travelers will stay the night at enchanting Ruthin Castle situated in the north of Wales. Visit Oxford, home of the famous university, which is more than 800 years old. They will travel through the picturesque English Lake District and visit the charming village of Grasmere, home of the poet William Wordsworth.
