🎅Fire Department Community Visits

One of my favorite traditions is when the fire department brings Santa through our neighborhood! The sirens always sound to notify us that he is close and we are typically running through the street in our pajamas and slippers to wave hello. My kids can be heard squealing with delight and yelling for friends and neighbors to share in the fun! Find your nearest fire department below and click the link for the schedule! We will continue to add to the list as different stations release the info!
