Station 55 has been contacted once again by North Pole Enterprises to advise that Santa Claus will be riding with the fire department starting on Saturday, December 15, at approximately 3 p.m.  Santa will continue his trip via fire apparatus as needed until all of Fire District 3 streets have been visited — which may include the evenings of Tuesday December 18 and Wednesday December 19.  Since the fire department is “in service” during Santa’s visits, any emergency runs requiring the department may delay Santa’s tour.  Santa has been known to take in a box alarm or two in his day.

We know everyone is excited to see St. Nick, but ask parents cooperation by keeping children on the sidewalk, lawns or driveways and not run ahead of the fire apparatus in the street.  Everyone will have the opportunity to see Santa as he passes through the neighborhoods.

Listen closely as he says “Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all” on his grand tour of the fire district!
