Romeoville Village asks residents to help 'Keep the Wreath Red'

Romeoville Fire Department urges the citizens of all communities to take time to help “Keep The Wreath Red” from December 1, 2019 through January 2, 2020

Wreaths illuminated with red bulbs at all 3 fire stations have been provided to remind everyone to practice holiday fire safety.

If a holiday-related fire occurs during the holiday season, one of the red light bulbs will be changed to a white light bulb.

This will serve as a reminder of the safety precautions that must be observed during the holiday season.

The Romeoville Fire Department urges the citizens of all communities to take time to help “Keep The Wreath Red” from December 1, 2019 through January 2, 2020, and eliminate unwanted fires by providing a fire safe environment at home and work.

Some suggestions to help make this holiday season safer are:

Unplug holiday lights before leaving home or sleeping

Do not overload extension cords

Be careful with candles and open flames

Use flame-retardant decorations

Ensure lights are in good condition and Underwriters Laboratories (UL) listed

Keep natural trees watered; do not rely on chemical sprays to make your tree flame resistant

Remember to check all smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors in your home
