Marysville firefighters ask citizens to 'Keep the Wreath Green'

MARYSVILLE — It's that time of year again, so the Marysville Fire District is asking you to help keep the wreath green.
Starting Nov. 24, as you drive by any of the fire district's stations, you should notice a giant wreath covered in green bulbs. It's part of the district's annual "Keep the Wreath Green" program.
As part of the program, the green bulbs are changed to red whenever there is a structure fire in the Marysville Fire District. The bulbs are changed to white when a firefighter anywhere in the United States dies in the line of duty.
It's firefighters' way of reminding people that, although there is a lot to keep people busy during the holiday, fire prevention should be on our minds every day.
The "Keep the Wreath Green" program runs through New Year's Day, and will serve as a reminder to those who pass the fire stations to keep this holiday season a safe one.
