Keeping The Wreaths Red

Once again this holiday season Fond du Lac Fire and Rescue is hoping to keep the wreaths red at its three fire stations. It is the fifth year for the Red Wreath campaign. Each wreath features red lights, which are replaced with white bulbs each time a home fire is started from the use of Christmas decorations. Division Chief Troy Haase says they’ve been lucky that they haven’t had that many house fires this year. Haase feels fire prevention education is part of the reason people have been safer. While house fires have been down this year ambulance calls have increased by 7 to 9 percent. (Fond du Lac Fire/Rescue photo)
