Brookfield Volunteer Fire Company is cautioning residents of a phone solicitation scam.  On Thursday, the department was notified that people received calls asking for donations on behalf of the fire company from the Uniformed Professional Fire Fighters Association of Connecticut.  Brookfield VFC is not affiliated with them, nor do they have authorization to solicit on the department's behalf.  Their legitimate fund drive consists of 4 mailings during the year and a door to door fund drive yesterday and tonight.  Firefighters cautioned people not to give any personal information over the phone.
