The West Sacramento Fire Department, in conjunction with the West Sacramento Firefighter’s Association, is preparing for the annual “Santa Run” through West Sacramento. With the help of many off-duty firefighter “elves,” Santa will be riding through various neighborhoods on an elaborately decorated fire truck “sleigh” and handing out candy canes purchased and donated by the West Sacramento Firefighter’s Association. Additionally, Santa will have a pickup truck following his “sleigh” with helpers collecting any canned food donations for the needy.
The West Sacramento Firefighter’s Association would like to extend its most sincere thanks and appreciation to all those who come out to make canned food donations, as well as to the Fire Chief & City Manager, for permitting the usage and decoration of the ladder truck for this annual tradition.
