The Fire Department Would Like to Remind Residents to “Keep the Wreath Red"

The Park Ridge Fire Department would like to remind residents to "Keep the wreath RED"! The Fire Department will have a wreath hanging on the front of both fire stations, beginning November 25. This wreath is decorated with red holiday lights. If a holiday related fire occurs, a red bulb will be taken out and replaced with a white bulb. Below are some tips to a fire safe Holiday season.

Be sure to extinguish candles before going to sleep or leaving the house. It is recommended that you use battery-operated candles for decorative purposes.

If you decide to have a real Christmas tree this year, make sure you keep it well watered.

Inspect holiday lights for damage to cords or plugs prior to use.

Test your smoke detectors today, to ensure that they are functioning properly.

Together we can, "Keep the wreath RED" and have a safe Holiday season in the City of Park Ridge.
