SERVING THE PEOPLE OF HUNTLEY SINCE 1960 m^itit USPS 580-360 THURSDAY November 28,1996 - VOLUME 36, NUMBER 34 - HUNTLEY, ILLINOIS IWENTY-FIVE CENTS "Keep The Wreath Red" Huntley Village Board Declares "Lady Redskins Day" By Capt. Al V/iesneth Huntley Fire Prevention Bureau For the 14tii year in a row, the Huntley Fire Protection District is asking the residents of Huntiey for special effort to "Keep the Wreath Red" this holiday season. This is part of a state wide campaign to alert residents concerning fires caused by holiday decorations. A large wreath is displayed on the front window of Huntley Fire Station location at 11808 Coral Su^eet. The wreath starts with its bright red lights constantiy lit. If there is a fire in the district caused directly by holiday decorations, a red bulb on the wreath is replaced with a white one. Huntley has kept the wreath red every year since HFPD began the program 14 years ago. Huntley firefighters request all residents to please continue to be fire-safely minded again Uiis year. The following are a few tips for a safe holiday season. May sure Christmas trees are fresh and kept away from any type of heat. Check often for water in the tree stand to reduce ti^ee from drying. Make sure all lights are UL tested and check all lights and cords to insure they are in good condition. Never use inside lights for outside use, since they are not made to withstand tiie weather. Keep children away and pets away from electrical cords around the Christmas tree and other lighted decorations. Use power strips instead of multi-plug adapters to avoid overloaded electrical circuits. All dwellings should have working smoke detectors. Check them for you and your family's safety. ~ Smoke detectors and fire extinguishers make excellent gifts that say you care. The HunUey Fire Protection District wishes all of you a happy and "Safe" holiday season. Once again, "Keep die Wreatii Red."
