North Shore Communities Were Able To “Keep The Wreaths Red” This Holiday Season!

Jan. 14, 2010

North Shore Communities Were Able To “Keep The Wreaths Red” This Holiday Season!

 

This holiday season we celebrated the 29th year anniversary of Illinois Fire Chiefs Association’s (IFCA) adopted “Keep the Wreath Red” Program. All seven (7) of the North Shore communities were successful in preventing holiday decoration related fires and therefore were able to “Keep Their Wreaths Red.” We did not have a single fire as a result of a holiday decoration!

 

Annually the “Keep the Wreath Red” Program is endorsed by the IFCA Board of Directors to alert residents of fires caused by holiday decorations. Each year a few more departments participate in this program.

 

The “Keep the Wreath Red” Program is a visual reminder to citizens to take additional safety precautions during the holiday season to make this a safe and happy holiday season.

 

In 1996, the North Shore Fire Department joined fire departments around the country in the "Keep the Wreath Red" program.

 

As the holiday season begins, each fire station in the North Shore places in public view a holiday wreath decorated with red bulbs. The wreaths are illuminated constantly. If a fire is directly caused by holiday decorations, one red bulb will be changed to a white bulb.

 

On behalf of the entire North Shore Fire Department, thank you for taking the necessary precautions during this holiday season to prevent holiday decoration related fires and in helping us to "Keep The Wreaths Red!"

 

Questions or comments can be directed to the North Shore Fire Department Public Education Office at 414-228-0292 or jglanz@nsfire.org.
