Fire Dept. touts recent holiday community campaigns as record successes

During the holidays, the Cape Coral Fire Department promotes two community campaigns.

One of those programs is “Keep the Wreath Green.”

Keep the Wreath Green is a way to remind Cape Coral citizens the importance of fire safety during the holiday season. On December 1, the Department hangs a wreath outside Fire Station 4 on Santa Barbara Boulevard. The wreath is filled with green lights. When the department responds to a call of a preventable fire, such as cooking, smoking, candles, space heaters, etc., a green light is replaced with a red light.
