Keep the Wreath Green
The holiday season usually has an increase in residential fires. People are using their fire places more often, have candles burning, cooking more frequently, and have trees decorated.
The Bellevue Fire Department has a few safety tips to keep your family and home safe this holiday season. Have your chimney checked and cleaned by a professional. Never leave candles or cooking equipment unattended. If you have a real tree in your home make sure you keep it well watered and heat sources away.
The “Keep the Wreath Green” campaign will run until the end of December. The wreaths will be removed in January.
