[ARCHIVED] Keep the Wreath Red Program

Keep the Wreath Red Program

Each year the Elmhurst Fire Department teams up with the Illinois Fire Chief’s Association and neighboring fire departments in the “Keep the Wreath Red” program. The holiday fire safety program is designed to increase fire safety awareness. A holiday wreath will hang on the outside of both fire stations for the month of December.  In the event of a holiday-related fire, firefighters will replace one of the red bulbs with a white one. The goal is to keep the bulbs on that wreath red. Fire safety reminders for a safe holiday season include keeping live Christmas trees watered, making sure all illuminated decorations and your fireplace are in good condition, making sure your fireplace is in good working order, using candles with caution, not overloading extension cords or outlets with excessive holiday lights, and making sure smoke detectors work.
