Peachtree City Fire Dept. Changes Format for Santa Run 2008

In an attempt to save on fuel, wear and tear on equipment and due to budget cuts, the Peachtree City Fire Department has changed the format for Santa Run 2008.

Children of all ages are welcome to visit Santa Claus at the Fire Station. The Department will host children and their families on Sunday, December 14th and 21st at Station 81, Paschall Road & Highway 74 (Two blocks south of the US Post Office) from 12:00 PM (noon) to 4 PM.

Santa and his "elves" will be present and containers available for visitors to deposit Toys for Tots (US Marine Corps) and canned/non-perishable goods for local churches to help the needy at Christmas time. At the same time our visitors are welcome to check out the fire trucks, firefighters and the fire station. This will be a great time for pictures with Santa Claus and the fire trucks.

John Dailey, Fire Marshal said, "We are saddened at our inability to get Santa to every street in our fair city this year but hope to return to our traditional format next year."
