Fire departments promote holiday lighting safety

Posted by wlpo on November 30, 2015

Holiday displays in front of both the Mendota and Peru Fire Departments include a wreath lit up with red lights. It’s your job to keep it red.

The fire departments have kicked off the annual “Keeping the Wreath Red” campaign. If the fire departments between now and the beginning of 2016 respond to fires started directly by holiday lights, a red bulb is replaced by a white one. It’s a symbolic suggestion to take precautions with fire dangers during the holidays.

Dry air in homes along with candles and trees add to the rise in fires.
