"Keep The Wreath Green" promotes fire awareness


As you drive by fire departments across our area, chances are you will notice a wreath outside. Many departments are taking part in the Keep The Wreath Green program.

The wreaths are covered in green lights. For every fire, a red light is added.

Battalion Chief Doug Beula of the Wausau Fire Department says, "This is a chance to draw awareness to some things we often forget about during the holiday season. We use more candles, decoration and lights. That can lead to fire danger. So, we want to remind people to think about the holiday and reducing those risks."

The awareness program runs from Thanksgiving until the New Year's celebration.
