AMARILLO -- It has been recently brought to the attention of the Amarillo Fire Department that telemarketers are trying to solicit money in the name of Fire Fighters Association using the AFD name.
Many of these calls are being made show an area code from the Austin area.
The solicitors are asking for funds to support the Fire Department.
The AFD does not solicit funds therefore the AFD will not be receiving any of the funds donated to this organization. The AFD operates from a budget that is funded by the city tax base.
