Santa to arrive on fire truck: Here’s St. Nick’s schedule
The West Sacramento Fire Department, in conjunction with the West Sacramento Firefighters’ Association, is preparing for the annual “Santa Run” through West Sacramento.

Additionally, Santa will have a pickup truck following his “sleigh” with helpers collecting any canned food donations for the needy.
The West Sacramento Firefighters’ 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 and City Manager, for permitting the usage and decoration of the ladder truck for this annual tradition.
