Help "Keep the Wreath Green" & Eliminate Preventable Structure Fires in December

Help "Keep the Wreath" Green by Preventing Fires During Dec. 1-31

During December, the Athens-Clarke County Fire and Emergency Services Department encourages the community’s support to help eliminate structure fires this holiday season and "Keep the Wreath Green." For every preventable structure fire experienced from December 1-31, a green bulb on an image of a wreath will be changed from green to red. 

The wreath and its progress will be displayed throughout the month on the Fire Department’s website at and the department’s social media outlets, along with holiday and winter fire prevention tips. Residents are encouraged to read the tips and do their part to help "Keep the Wreath Green."
