Santa Runs With the Fire Department 2012

  • Sharebar

Wondering when Santa is making a run with firefighters in your neighborhood? Here’s my complete list, with all the links I could find! Isn’t it great that the other guys with a fast red ride help him with all this recon work? If you know of one I missed, do let me know!


Valley Regional Fire Authority Serves Algona, Auburn, and Pacific. I can’t find any specifics on Santa runs, but you can meet fire fighters collecting toy and food donations at several area grocery stores.

King County Fire District 44 AKA Mountain View   Serves parts of Auburn, Kent, Enumclaw, and Black Diamond. Santa will ride by on trucks and collect donations of toys and food. They have a whole page showing when he’ll be in your neighborhood.

Eatonville Link says TBA but this makes me hopeful!

Bring donations of food or warm clothing. Good chance you’ll see Santa

Central PierceIncludes Puyallup, South Hill, Summit, and Parkland/Spanaway 

December 1st-Santa will be at the tree lighting in Puyallup after the 5PM parade at the Pioneer Park Pavillion. Update: I did confirm that Santa will be available for pics and visits after the tree lighting. Meet him at the rotary stage for free pics. Explorers will be handing out hot chocolate and cookies. There will be a holiday market in the pavilion at the same time, for those of you who want to get in a little shopping.

Station 67 8005 Canyon Rd 5-8PM

Pics with Santa available; bring a food or toy donation; If you live in the Puyallup city limits, and you’re wondering when Santa will actually be coming by on the fire truck, the sad news is that this hasn’t happened since the merger with Central Pierce a couple years ago. Believe me, we were super sad about it, too, but at least now you know…..

    I know the Maple Valley Fire Department does this but I couldn’t find any info on their website. My son gets to go to “Christmas Camp” at Grandma and Grandpa’s house (in Maple Valley) and see Santa on the firetruck. He is very excited!
