Also in Your Town: Painting with a Twist raises $500 for Grace Community Food Pantry.
The Palm Coast Fire Department is asking everyone to help keep the wreaths green at the city's fire stations by preventing fires.
Project Green Wreath is a fire prevention program that runs through the month of December. Large wreaths have been hung at all five stations, with green light bulbs in each. Firefighters will replace one green light with a red light for each structure fire during the month, according to a news release.
"Project Green Wreath is a visual reminder of the importance of implementing and following fire safety practices during the holiday season," Palm Coast Fire Chief Jerry Forte said in the release.
The city invites the community to watch “Holiday Fire Safety Tips - Meet Joey Christmas” video: https://youtu.be/XaowMx3wAKY for fire safety tips.
