One of the things my boys look forward to every year around the holiday season is seeing Santa drive past our house on a fire truck! The following Fire Departments host a Santa run schedule each year. The dates and times have been announced for a handful of stations. However, not all have been announced yet. I will keep this list updated to help families and to reduce contacting the stations who are already busy responding to emergencies. Keep in mind inclement weather and rescue calls can cause cancelations, delays or schedule changes. If you’re not sure which schedule your neighborhood follows check this map for Charles County Residents: Charles County Map.
