Volunteer firefighters to join Santa for special ride

Volunteer firefighters will meet with Santa to distribute gifts to children in the Highway 15 Fire Department area Friday and Saturday. This will be the 10th annual Fire Department Santa Visit.

Santa and his helpers will ride the fire truck with lights flashing and sirens sounding starting at 6 p.m. Friday and 5:30 p.m. Saturday.

While the basic program consists of loved ones supplying gifts for Santa to deliver in the fire department’s region, the helpers try to have extra presents for those who weren’t on the list, according to spokesman Charles Cady.
