The Fire District was recently contacted by two local businesses who were charged hundreds of dollars for a fake fire inspection by a private company. Companies offering fire inspection services take advantage of an ambiguous section of the State Fire Code as a business practice that often leave local businesses with high priced invoices for dubious services. Representatives from these companies tend to prey on businesses that are minority owned and operated or where the owner/manager is frequently off-site, allowing unsuspecting employees to be exploited. While the business practice is technically not illegal, the Rancho Cucamonga Fire District (RCFD) encourages businesses to be informed to avoid falling victim to the scam. View the Fire District's tip sheet on what to look for and how to respond if your business is approached by one of these companies.
