The annual “Keep the Wreath Green” campaign did not go as well as firefighters hoped. For this campaign, local departments hang a wreath outside their stations between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Every time participating departments respond to a structure fire, they switch a bulb on the wreath from green to red. La Crosse Fire Chief Jeff Schott told News 8 that area firefighters responded to seven fires, including one in La Crosse that was fatal. Chief Schott says that was not what they hoped for.
