Keep the Wreath Red 


Please help the Palatine Fire Department spread the word about their annual Keep the Wreath Red holiday safety program. Each year between Thanksgiving and New Year's Day, a wreath with red lights will hang above all 5 fire stations. For every call that is holiday related, one bulb will be changed to a white bulb.

We hope, as you pass the wreaths you will consider potential fire safety problems in your home and take the time to correct them. Some safety considerations include:

  • Check all holiday lighting for wear or damaged wiring and replace as needed.
  • Use indoor/outdoor lighting and extension cords where they are intended.
  • Do not run lighting or extension cords through windows, doors or across sidewalks.
  • Do not overload electrical cords. If it is hot, it is overloaded!
  • Turn off all holiday lighting prior to leaving or going to bed.
  • If displaying a live tree, use a sturdy tree stand and water the tree often.
  • Keep the tree, wreaths and all holiday decorations away from any heat source; such as fireplaces, space heaters, candles and heating ducts.
  • Use only sturdy candle holders and only place on firm, uncluttered surfaces.
  • Do not place candles in windows near blinds and curtains.

For more information on home fire safety visit our website or the National Fire Protection Association.

All of the members of the Palatine Fire Department wish you a safe and happy holiday season.
