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 it’s 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.
This year the Santa Run is scheduled for six nights beginning at 6:00 PM each night. Please note that the run each evening is based on the weather conditions as well. If it rains on a scheduled night we will try to make it up the next week. The decision whether to cancel or reschedule will be made one hour prior to the run each night and will be posted on the WSFD social media outlets Twitter and Facebook to assist families with their plans. We are looking forward to a great event and hope you can join us.
