Initial Details:

Good afternoon everyone. The Westminster Fire Department and Santa hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving!! Santa will be making his rounds on the fire engines starting on Monday December 17 through Thursday the 20th. (Maps and Locations will be posted later this week). We generally leave the station around 6pm and conclude the evening around 830pm.

Please remember that the fire apparatus is in service and may have to respond to emergency calls. Emergency calls and weather may affect the routes and days. It is nearly impossible to touch every single street in Westminster, which is why we post maps and have stopping points. If we don’t come down your street look at the maps so you can see where we will be. Live updates will be posted on this page so share this page with your friends.

Our breakfast will Santa will be on Saturday December 22. If you miss us during the week come out for some breakfast and a picture with Santa.

The Westminster Fire Department and Santa can’t wait to see everyone!!

Distracted Driving Awareness Month

Message from National Safety Council

Distracted driving is a public health issue that affects us all. The latest statistics show motor vehicle fatalities are up 6% from 2015. More than 40,000 people were killed on our nation’s roadways last year, and distracted driving is a major contributor.

Each death is 100% preventable. From cell phones to dashboard infotainment systems to evolving voice command features – all pose a threat to our safety. Just one second of your attention is all takes to change a life forever.

Distracted Driving Awareness Month in April is a united effort to recognize and eliminate preventable deaths from distracted driving. Join us to help save lives.
