Sharing on behalf of our friends at NFPA…

NFPA has been made aware of a company sending what looks like formal correspondence using both an “nfpa.org” email address and an “nfpa.org” web reference in the body of the letter and indicating that a “fire inspection” is required or has been performed.  These messages threaten the recipient with civil violations and penalties for failing to respond.  It appears the communication is aimed at scaring recipients into scheduling and paying for fire inspections.

Please be advised that this communication is in no way related to NFPA.  NFPA does not conduct fire inspections, issue inspection reports, levy fines, or perform activity related to code enforcement.  If you receive an email of this nature, we urge you to use caution in handling it.   You may want to check with your local fire code enforcement agency for more information about the requirements in your location.

We wanted to make you aware of this matter so that you can respond accordingly and alert others who are responsible for inspections in some capacity.

If you have any questions, please let me or Laura King know.
