Several area fire departments including the village of Barrington and the Barrington Countryside Fire Protection District are participating in a "Keep the Wreath Red" program, a public awareness initiative that encourages residents to prevent fires caused by seasonal decorations.

Festive wreaths hanging at fire stations will begin the holiday season illuminated with red bulbs. Any fire caused by decorations will be changed to a white bulb.
