[ARCHIVED] Keep the Wreath Red This Holiday Season

The Lombard Fire Department is teaming up with other fire departments in the area to participate in the “Keep the Wreath Red Program.” This holiday fire safety program serves as a visual reminder for residents to take additional safety measures as they decorate for the holidays.

On Thanksgiving Day, Lombard firefighters will display wreaths with all red bulbs outside of each fire station. If a fire occurs in our community that is attributed to holiday decorations, firefighters will replace a red bulb with a white bulb. This display will continue through January 1, 2021. Our community’s goal is to keep the wreaths red. 

 The Lombard Fire Department offers these safety tips to help keep your homes safer during the holiday season: 

  • Consider displaying an artificial tree
  • When using a live tree, select a tree that is dark green in color and one that does not lose its needles readily
  • Keep live trees away from heat sources
  • Keep live trees well-watered
  • Do not overload lighting circuits or utilize damaged or worn holiday lighting
  • Extinguish candles when you leave the room or go to sleep for the night
  • Keep candles in containers that prevent the candle from tipping over or falling
  • Keep candles away from flammable materials
  • Make sure your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors are working

Additionally, residents are encouraged to call the Lombard Bureau of Fire Prevention regarding any home safety concerns or questions at (630) 620-5750.
