We have been advised by a quick-thinking client that people posing as representatives of the Fire Brigade are calling residents on the Central Coast to offer to replace the battery in their home smoke alarm. Please note the Fire Brigade do not randomly offer such a service. If you receive a call like this, hang up immediately and do not let anyone in your home posing as being there to assist with this task.
