West Overland Firefighters have established stops at convenient locations throughout the fire district in areas North and South of the Fire Station, with a few exceptions. These locations will be clearly marked with a “Santa Stops Here” sign. We have provided a list of stops for the two Saturdays that Santa will be out and about within our fire district. Each route takes about 6 hours to complete. With 22 stops per day, this would equate to approximately 16 minutes per stop. Some stops are longer and some are shorter so exact times are very difficult to predict.
Safety and security are our primary concerns for our children, residents and personnel. We are sorry that we are unable to travel down each and every street within the district. Some streets are dead ends, making them difficult to traverse with large trucks and trailers. Some streets are too dangerous for children and our personnel due to the amount of traffic and the traffic speeds. Midland, Adie and Ashby are prime examples of busy roads that we consider too great of a risk for Santa Stops. Please feel free to walk or transport your children to one of our many stopping points along Santa’s journey. We ask that if you drive to a “Santa Stops Here” location, to please respect the neighborhood and leave ample room for our apparatus and residents to pass through.
Please have a very Safe and Happy Holiday!
