Hoverboards are sure to be a popular item under the Christmas tree this holiday season.
Due to the number of reported fire incidents associated with hoverboards, the Cape Coral Fire Department urges hover board owners to read product guidelines and be aware of potential fire hazards when using these new and popular devices. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and the National Association of State Fire Marshals (NASFM) recently issued safety tips for the use, care, and maintenance of hover boards.

The Cape Coral Fire Department’s “Keep the Wreath Green” fire safety campaign began on Tuesday, December 1.
For the third year, Cape Coral firefighters have placed a wreath illuminated with green bulbs at Fire Station 4, located at 2007 Santa Barbara Boulevard. If a preventable fire such as cooking, smoking, space heaters, candles, etc. occurs between December 1 and January 1, one of the green bulbs will change to red. The goal is to keep the wreath lights green. For the past two years, the campaign ended with the wreath displaying five red bulbs.
