Station 55 Santa Patrol

Santa Claus is coming to town!

Station 55 Santa Patrol will begin Saturday, December 13th starting at 2:00 pm. We will be out again on Wednesday, December 17 starting at 7:00 pm.

Your Station 55 Firefighters will be escorting Santa around the district to visit with the children. We will let you know Santa is close by from the sound of our sirens. As always, we will do our best to get to all of you. If you live on a cul-de-sac or dead-end street, it would be best to come down to the corner of your street. Of course, should one of your neighbors need our help during Santa Patrol, we may need to postpone our escort. We will do our best to reschedule. Please follow us on Facebook for updates.

Merry Christmas from all of us at Station 55. We wish you a wonderful New Year!
