Fire safety is on display this holiday season with
local Fire Departments' 'Keep the Wreath Green' event.
Departments from La Crosse, Onalaska, Campbell and
La Crescent will hang wreaths decorated with green
Christmas lights at their stations this year.
Every time a station responds to a structer fire.
a green light is replaced with a red one.
Fire officials say the best thing you can do to prevent
a fire is to not leave electronics and stoves unnatended.
People leaving their houses, you know, they have their
trees lit, they have many people over, they're distracted,
You know, a lot of those events can cause these fires.
Fire officials recommend you check your smoke detectors
and turn off any electronics and cooking appliances
before leaving the house.
