“Keep the Wreath Red” Program Begins
The Grayslake Fire Protection District would like to remind everybody of
its participation in the annual “Keep the Wreath Red” Program in an
effort to promote Holiday Safety. At each fire station
there is a Holiday wreath on display and illuminated entirely by red
light bulbs. If there is a fire caused by any holiday
decorations, firefighters will replace a red bulb with a white bulb.
Thus, the goal of the program is to “Keep the Wreath Red”. The program
runs through New Year’s Day.
Fire Safety Reminders for the home during the Holidays include:
Have working smoke alarms on every level of
your home, in the hallways outside bedrooms, and inside each
bedroom. Test alarms monthly, replace batteries at least
once a year, and replace alarms when they are 10 years old.
Have working carbon monoxide alarms within
15 feet of every sleeping area.
Make sure all electrical cords & decorations
are UL-listed, in good condition, and not overloaded. Do not
place electrical cords under rugs. Make sure all cords used
outside are listed for outdoor use.
live Christmas trees watered thoroughly and frequently. Do not use
live candles on or near the tree!
Be extremely careful with candles—better
yet, use battery-powered candles instead.
Keep a multi-purpose (ABC) fire extinguisher
handy and know how to use it.
Never leave the house or go to bed with
candles lit, holiday lights on, or food cooking on the stove.
Have your fireplace chimney professionally
inspected and cleaned, and use a secure fireplace screen.
Keep all combustible items at least 3 feet
(36 inches) from any heat source.
- Clean the lint from your dryer after every load, and have
dryer vent professionally cleaned.
