Creative partnership promotes holiday safety

Shriners Hospitals for Children has teamed up with the fire department in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin this year to promote holiday fire safety, particularly with Christmas Tree safety.  3,000 water resistant ornaments were generously provided by the Shriners and the Fond du Lac Fire Department was more than happy to jump in to distribute them.  And they knew just the right places to begin.  The ornaments were attached to trees for sale at local tree sale locations and the local news media was on-hand to help spread the word. Chief Peter O'Leary hopes to expand on this program in future years and reach attendees of the Holiday parade or the annual tree-lighting ceremony.  "We hope these ornaments will remind our residents of how to keep fire safe during he holiday season" he says.
