Does the Chesapeake Fire Department solicit funds over the phone or door to door?

No. The Chesapeake Fire Department is a fully funded city department that operates under a formal budget. Chesapeake Firefighters do not solicit funds from citizens. There have been instances where funds were accepted on behalf of fire victims or special circumstances such as September 11th. Please note that these special funds were/are coordinated through a local banking institution with public notification through the media.
