'Keep the Wreath Green' Fire Safety Campaign
The Pensacola Fire Department, in collaboration with Escambia County Fire Rescue, has launched its annual “Keep the Wreath Green” Fire Safety campaign for the month of December. While a joyous time of year, cold weather, holiday decorations and festivities can create serious fire dangers. Firefighters hope to reduce the number of fires by promoting simple, life-saving holiday safety tips each day in December.
During the month-long campaign, 5-foot wreaths will be on display at City Hall and across Pensacola and Escambia County. Each time firefighters respond to a residential fire with damage, a green bulb we be replaced with a red one to remind citizens of the dangers posed by fires in residential homes.
