Keep The Wreath Green by Being Safe

From the Marysville Fire District: Let's do our best to "keep the wreath green" throughout the entire holiday season. Here is the full press release:

Through New Year’s Day, a giant wreath covered in green bulbs will hang outside each of the five Marysville Fire District stations. The green bulbs will change to red whenever there is a structure fire within the Fire District. The bulbs are changed to white when a firefighter anywhere in the United States dies in the line of duty.

The wreaths will serve as a reminder to all residents to keep this holiday season a safe one.

Here are a few things you and your family can do to help prevent fires and injuries during the holidays:

  • Stay in the kitchen while cooking. The three leading dates for home fires caused by cooking are Thanksgiving, Christmas and Christmas Eve. Unattended cooking is the leading factor in these fires.
  • Blow out lit candles when you leave the room or go to bed and avoid placing candles near decorations or things that can burn. Two out of every five home decoration fires are started by candles.
  • Make sure your Christmas tree is at least three feet away from any heat source (fireplaces, heaters, candles, etc.). A heat source close to the tree causes one quarter of Christmas tree fires.
  • Always turn off Christmas tree lights before leaving home or going to bed.
