First Responders in Monroe are cautioning residents to a fundraising scam from a group that calls itself the Volunteer Firefighters Association.  A a program of the Heroes United PAC has been calling and writing people in Monroe asking for donations to help firefighters.  The three volunteer fire companies in Monroe do not call residents for donations, but rather hold annual fund drives, asking for donations to be mailed to their respective fire department.  The Volunteer Firefighters Association is a political action committee based in Wisconsin and is not associated with any of the three local fire departments.  The volunteer firefighters also say they do not benefit from donations sent to the PAC.
