Smoke Alarm “Possible Scam”

The following was issued by the North Chatham Volunteer Fire Department. Subject: Smoke Alarm “Possible Scam”

On the morning of March 08, 2019, the North Chatham Volunteer Fire Department received a telephone call asking if anyone from the fire department had been campaigning door to door asking to check smoke alarms. The call was from an elderly woman’s daughter that lives here in the North Chatham fire district. The fire department informed the daughter that they install smoke alarms by referral and that they call to schedule a time to go out and assist homeowners with smoke alarm issues. They also told the daughter that the department had not participated in any door-to-door smoke alarm campaign. The daughter then stated that she was afraid that someone was casing her mother’s home and that she’d already reached out to the local Sheriff’s Office.

The North Chatham Volunteer Fire Department would like to make everyone aware of this possible scam and in hopes that someone is not trying to gain access to anyone’s home disguised as a Firefighter.

If you encounter this type of issue, please contact the Chatham County Sheriff’s Department at 919-542-2811.

Older Workers, America’s Most Undervalued Asset

Older Workers, America’s Most Undervalued Asset

discussion has occurred here on TriplePundit, as our writers and guest commentators have been reminding readers about how this generation of workers generally seeks work-life balance, a job with purpose and a working environment in which they are assured their employers are giving back.


Comment by Lee Anne McClymont, Fellow, Southeast, USA at Global Institute for Experienced Entrepreneurship & Leader of the Fearrington Elder Innovators pictured in slide #3 on the top of our homepage: “Elder Innovators are advancing the “design with, not for,” movement in the Triangle region of North Carolina. At the same time, we see where our elders are learning ways to onboard the start-up’s spaces in our region. Universities matter to us, too! NC State University School of Design, ID Program is keeping us on our feet as agile and adaptive learners and contributors. We are coalescing around design, but building a community of contributors and learners, unlike anything I have seen before, anywhere. Stay tuned.”

On-Line Security 101: Tips for Protecting Your from Hackers & Spies

How to keep your data secure and private, step by step

Got nothing to hide? Think again. Privacy is what sets us apart from the animals. It’s also what sets many countries and citizens apart from dictatorships and despots. People often don’t think about their rights until they need them — whether it’s when they’re arrested at a protest or pulled over for a routine traffic stop.
