The Plainfield Fire Protection District is participating in the holiday fire safety campaign called "Keep the Wreath Red" along with other area fire departments and fire districts. Every fire station is decorated with a holiday wreath with red lights on it. If a fire is caused by a holiday decoration a red light will be replaced with a white light. The goal is to raise awareness of holiday fire safety in an effort to keep all the wreaths red this holiday season!
