Marysville: Help keep the wreath green
The Marysville Fire District is asking residents to help keep the wreath green.
A giant wreath covered in green bulbs will be outside of the district's fire station beginning Thursday. The wreaths are part of the annual "Keep the Wreath Green" program.
As part of the program, the green bulbs are changed to red whenever there is a structure fire in the Marysville Fire District. The bulbs are changed to white when a firefighter anywhere in the United States dies in the line of duty.
The Keep the Wreath Green program runs through Jan. 1.
