Fire departments in the Coulee Region are taking part in the 12th annual 'Keep the Wreath Green' fire prevention campaign. "The day after Thanksgiving, we put a wreath up, and it's covered in green lights, outside of City Hall here and in every one of our surrounding communities," said Onalaska Fire Department firefighter and EMT Jack Hubbard. "So, the City of Onalaska participates, as do Holmen, La Crosse, La Crescent, and Campbell. If one of us has a fire, we replace a green light with a red light." The wreath will also have one white light bulb to signify firefighters who have died in the line of duty and to serve as a reminder of the men and women serving in the armed forces.
