Fire Dept Disavows Promotion Firm

Narrative: A few years ago the Coeur d’Alene Fire Department approved a concept for a “Fire Safety Awareness Board” promotional campaign with Firehouse Promotions in Moline Illinois. The concept was for Firehouse Promotions to print a number of fire safety messages for the Coeur d’Alene Fire Department to distribute free of charge to the fire department. Shortly after this approval from the Fire Department, the fire department began to receive concerns and complaints from business owners that they had been receiving sales calls from the company requesting donations for this project and indicating they represented the Coeur d’Alene Fire Department.   The Fire Department immediately contacted the company and asked them to stop representing that they were affiliated with the Coeur d’Alene Fire Department/Deputy Fire Chief Glenn Lauper, Coeur d'Alene Fire Department.
