Good morning!

Did anyone happen to see the press release in this week's issue of The Newtown Bee, about a special guest who will be visiting our main station in just a few weeks?

We are extremely excited to announce that Santa will be here on Sunday, December 3, with North Pole Fire Dept Engine 12 25, and a very special fire engine.

Santa and his elves will be here from noon until 9 pm, offering free rides on that sleigh. We'll have hot chocolate and cider available for everyone.

It will be the second weekend of our annual holiday fundraiser, which also offers wreaths, pine roping, kissing balls, and cemetery boxes. The sale will be operating from 9 am until 9 pm that day.

We're looking forward to seeing everyone next weekend!

Good morning!

One week from today firefighters from across town will be collecting donations at two locations for the annual Fill The Fire Truck Food Drive. This annual event, done the Saturday before Thanksgiving, is coordinated by SHVFR EMS Captain Karin Halstead.

Thank you in advance for anything you can do to help make this Thanksgiving holiday a little brighter for our neighbors in need.

Today's rain reminds us of three weeks ago, when SHVFR firefighters did training at New Haven Fire Academy: three stations with different levels of entry, and plenty of hoseline work.
