The DeKalb and Sycamore Fire Departments announce this years’ annual presentation of the “Red Wreath Program.”
Since 1986 and 1997 respectively, the DeKalb and Sycamore departments have challenged residents to "Keep the Wreath Red" during the holiday season
On Thanksgiving Day, a red wreath will be placed on the outside of each DeKalb fire station, and both Sycamore stations. They will be displayed until January 1, 2015. The wreath will have all red bulbs when displayed; when there is an emergency incident related to the holiday season, firefighters will put a white bulb in the place of a red bulb for each incident.
Last year, the red wreaths indicated no incidents related to the holiday season.
