Letter: Thank you for supporting fire safety education

As participants in the Elburn Christmas Walk, the Elburn & Countryside Fire Protection District Fire Prevention Bureau would like to thank everyone for their support.
This year, the weather was perfect for some family fun, as well as education in fire safety. Annually, we host an open house that includes a live and artificial Christmas tree burn to demonstrate the need for smoke alarms and sprinkler systems in residences and businesses. This has been quite a popular attraction in years past, and we are happy to say it was again this year.
Our desire for education in fire safety requires assistance from local businesses and residents to be successful. The Fire Prevention Bureau would like to thank the following businesses and individuals for their donations of live trees, artificial trees, Christmas lights, wrapping paper and building materials: Home Depot of Geneva C/O Bob Brockman, Kuiper’s Family Farm, Lee’s Trees, Oswego Building Supplies C/O Bill McCartney, Rich Wrap, Spring Bluff Nursery, Greg Algrim, Monica DelMedico, Ian Engberg, Bill and Sue Hall, Bob Lennon, James Lloyd and John McCafferty. Your support of the Fire Prevention Bureau is greatly appreciated.
The Elburn & Countryside Fire Protection District would also like to thank district personnel for volunteering their time to make the demonstrations possible. Your dedication and strong desire for education in fire safety is what makes our Fire Prevention Bureau such an asset to the community.
All of us join in saying thank you and we wish you a happy, safe and healthy holiday and fruitful new year.
