Fire Safety campaigns a success

Posted by wlpo on January 3, 2016

Locally, 2 fire departments can claim success in their “Holiday Fire Safety” campaigns this season. Lonnie Eisenberg, member of the Mendota Fire Department said their “Keep the Wreath Red” campaign was successful because no red bulbs were replaced with white ones.  Firemen, did however,  have 2 fires during the month – one a barn and another a garage. Those, Eisenberg said, did not apply to the campaign which encourages fire safety around Christmas candles, lights and extension cords.

Eisenberg credits the results to the public being careful, but also their education efforts in Mendota pre and grade schools. Eisbenberg thinks decorations and their wiring are better made than 25 years ago.

Princeton Fire Department also told “Classic Hits 103-9 WLPO” news that their same campaign had no holiday related blazes this year.
