    Default just an FYI

    I just receive a package of Burn Foundation Calendars from a company that has worked with the IAFF in the past but is not this year. I know a message went out from the IAFF about their 2006 Burn Calendars stating they would not be just sending them out to all locals this year. This company called SKM/ BURN RESEARCH CALENDAR has set up their order form to copy the IAFF format from years past in hopes to confuse locals into thinking this is an IAFF Calendar. Please beware of this imitation, the 2 big giveaways are that they are shipped through DHL and there is no IAFF logo anywhere on the product.

    Funny that you post this now. We just received a shipment yesterday. All was exactly as you stated. Honestly if not for me reading your post we more than likely would never have known. Guess it was a good thing I was not on vacation ( I can't beleive I just said that).

    We just got them too, the only thing that initially caught our attention was that they shipped the wrong amount. After we noticed that, then we noticed the look-alike IAFF logo. Was a nice try, but they got sent back.
