Keep the Wreath Green

During the holiday season, Cherokee County Fire and Emergency Services will be participating in the "Keep the Wreath Green" campaign through Jan. 1. One green bulb on the wreath will be replaced by a red bulb for every structure fire that occurs in Cherokee County during that time period.

The purpose of this campaign is to remember to practice fire prevention during the holidays. It's the time of year when we enjoy festive meals with family and friends, deck our halls with colorful decorations and hang our stockings by the fireplace.  This is also the time of year that more fires occur due to extra time in the kitchen, Christmas lights, underwatered Christmas trees, candle usage and use of fires in undermaintained chimneys. 

Wreaths will be placed at different locations throughout the county such as Fire Stations and community areas and schools.  Be sure to check them out and please help us spread the word about fire safety. 

Here’s a checklist to ensure everyone has a safe holiday:

  • Be sure to water your natural tree often to prevent dry needles from becoming a fire hazard or utilize an artificial tree.
  • Discard your tree as soon as possible after the holiday.
  • Check your lights for exposed or frayed wires, loose connections and broken sockets.
  • Never leave lit candles unattended.
  • Store matches and lighters away from children.
  • Never overload electrical outlets.
  • Keep space heaters at least 3 feet away from any other object.
  • Be careful about having a fire when stockings are hung on the fireplace.
  • Use a fireplace screen to prevent sparks from escaping.
  • Have your chimney inspected once a year.
  • Keep a 3-foot kid-free zone around the oven and stove.
  • Check your smoke alarm batteries.
  • Sleep with your bedroom doors closed to prevent spread of fire.
  • Review your family fire escape plan and have a meeting place outside the home in case of fire.
  • Teach your guests your fire escape plan.
