Santa will make annual trip through Thorsby

Once again, the Thorsby Fire Department will be riding Santa on their fire engines on Christmas Eve before the big man rushes off to makes his deliveries.

This event will take place Dec. 24, between the hours of 5:30-7:30 p.m. A full schedule can be found at Thorsby Town Hall.

In case of inclement weather, citizens may visit Santa at their neighborhood fire station from 6-7 p.m. If inclement weather occurs after Santa is out on the vehicles, he will be returned to the stations and available there for approximately 1 hour after returning.

Citizens should not call 911 to inquire about Santa. You may call the fire station at 646-3725 to determine a tentative schedule of Santa’s arrival at your home. Please do not call these numbers in case of emergency. For emergencies, dial 911.

It is important to stress that Santa will be riding fire vehicles that are on duty and on call. If an emergency occurs, these vehicles will have to break away from Santa duty and respond to the emergency, said Thorsby Fire Chief Lee Gunn.

“In this case, we will make every effort to continue with Santa, but the emergency situations take priority,” said Gunn. “We apologize for any inconvenience and will do our best to have Santa visit as many neighborhoods and streets as possible.”
