GREEN BAY (NBC26) — This week the Green Bay Metro Fire Department will hang wreaths from their fire stations as part of a public awareness campaign that will last from Thanksgiving Day through January 1, 2022.

All of the wreaths will be initially lit with all green lights. For every residential fire that occurs during this holiday season, one light will be changed to red.

The fire department has a few tips for people during the holidays:

  • Make sure to have smoke detectors and carbon monoxide alarms installed.
  • Whenever you are cooking stay in the kitchen if the stove top is on.
  • Use turkey fryers outside; never inside.
  • Water your Christmas tree daily. A dry Christmas tree is easier to burn.
