Red Deer residents are urged to take a balanced approach when it comes to opening their front doors.
Red Deer RCMP and The City of Red Deer have advised the public to take precautions when dealing with high-pressure door-to-door sales tactics on the part of salespeople representing companies called Go Green and Eco Global.
However, sometimes City of Red Deer employees and their contractors still have to knock on doors and/or visit homes as part of our regular operations.
City of Red Deer workers from the departments of Electric Light & Power, Environmental Services, Inspections & Licensing, Public Works, and water meter contractor Metercor are among those workers who may have to knock on residents’ doors. Water main breaks, scheduled inspections, and water meter replacements are among the work regularly done by City and contracted workers. They will follow their departmental protocol and should have identification.
Residents who may be in doubt can call the department in question to ask if workers are in their neighborhood, or call the main City number at 403-342-8111.
City of Red Deer workers will never try to make a sale at the door.
Again, if someone is in your home and refusing to leave, you can call the RCMP complaint line at 403-343-5575.
