Wausau's "Keep The Wreath Green" finishes with four red bulbs
WAUSAU (WAOW) -- The Wausau fire department wrapped up its "Keep The Wreath Green" campaign with four fires reported during the holiday season.
Firefighters swapped out four of the green bulbs for red ones on the wreath outside the public safety building. One of the lieutenants said that's close to the same result as last year. Firefighters said safety is something to keep in mind all year long.
"Even though the holidays are over with, the danger and the potential for danger is still there," said Wausau Fire Department Lt. Steve Bahr. "Still making sure their extension cords and so forth are used properly and candles are not left burning unattended."
Even though they say they can't prove their campaign stopped any fires.. The fire fighters were happy to help increase fire safety awareness.
