During the 2016 Holiday Season there were fires in 28 Savannah homes — that’s one fire every other day in November and December.
Savannah Fire wants every family to have a fire-free 2017 holiday season. We’re releasing a safety tip for each day of the holiday season and hanging a fire safety reminder wreath outside Savannah Fire headquarters at 121 E. Oglethorpe Avenue.
The wreath will be decorated with green bulbs representing the bureau’s goal of zero fires between November 20, 2017 and January 2, 2018. Each time a fire occurs a green bulb will be replaced with a red bulb. The public is encouraged to follow the fire safety tips and help us keep the wreath green. Savannah Fire personnel are available for interviews on the Keep the Wreath Green initiative and holiday fire safety.
