Firefighters start safety campaign

SCHUYLER COUNTY--Schuyler County Firefighters Association will again team up with all of the fire departments in Schuyler County, along with Schuyler County Volunteer Ambulance Corps and Schuyler County Emergency Management, to remind all citizens to have a safe holiday season with the "Keep the Wreath Blue" safety reminder. The participating agencies will be placing a wreath in front of their stations this holiday season starting the day after Thanksgiving, Nov. 24, and through Dec. 31. The wreaths will be lit with blue lights. Whenever a structure fire occurs in the county a blue light bulb will be replaced with a red bulb.
The citizens of Schuyler County are asked to use this as a reminder to be vigilant in home holiday fire safety.
