Keep the Wreath Red

The Elburn & Countryside Fire Protection District is once again participating in the “Keep the Wreath Red” program during the holiday season. As you drive past the fire stations during this time, please take note of the large wreaths that are displayed on the buildings.

These wreaths will be illuminated with red lights. When a fire is determined to be caused or related to holiday decorations, one of the bulbs will be changed to white. The program is designed to remind the public of fire safety during the holiday season.

Kaneland Fire & Safety Foundation

The Elburn & Countryside Fire Protection District is part of the Kaneland Fire & Safety Foundation. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, the district will not be participating in school visits this year. Since we are not able to provide one on one fire safety education, we have provided the school districts with the online resources they need to be successful in teaching fire safety to their students.

The businesses in Elburn, Kaneville, Maple Park & Sugar Grove have donated funds annually so we are able to purchase fire prevention education materials that we give to the students when visiting the schools. The Kaneland Fire & Safety Foundation will not be soliciting donations this year but wish to extend a sincere THANK YOU to all these businesses for their support over the years.

Follow the link below for the letter to the local businesses.

Thank you to all for your support!

Fire Prevention Week October 4-10, 2020

Fire Prevention Week is October 4-10. This year’s FPW campaign, “Serve Up Fire Safety in the Kitchen!TM” works to educate everyone about the simple but important actions they can take to keep themselves, and those around them, safe in the kitchen.

Did you know?
Cooking is the #1 cause of home fires and home fire injuries. Unattended cooking is the leading cause of fires in the kitchen.

Importance of fire prevention

In a fire, mere seconds can mean the difference between a safe escape and a tragedy. Fire safety education isn’t just for school children. Teenagers, adults, and the elderly are also at risk in fires, making it important for every member of the community to take some time every October during Fire Prevention Week™ to make sure they understand how to stay safe in case of a fire.

 

Home Security Camera Records Living Room Fire

A home security camera captured an actual living room fire, showing how quickly a fire can spread. Every home should have a working smoke alarm and residents should practice an escape plan. All new homes should be protected with home fire sprinklers.
