Westmont, Illinois -- Date Issued: November 29, 2021
The Westmont Fire Department reminds residents to assist them with the “Keep the Wreath Red” program. “Keep the Wreath Red” program is an annual event aimed at increasing the awareness of safety while decorating our homes for the holidays. Outside both Fire Stations, is a wreath with red lights. The wreaths remain lit twenty-four hours a day during the holiday season December 1 through Jan 2. If a fire occurs that is determined to be the result of a holiday decoration, a white bulb replaces a red bulb on the wreath. The hope is the wreath will serve as a constant reminder to practice safety while displaying holiday decorations.
The following are some safety practices to keep in mind this holiday season.
If you have any fire safety questions, please contact the Westmont Fire Department at 630-981-6400.
