Redmond Firefighters announce 2012 neighborhood Santa schedule

December 7 - 23
Santa Claus is Coming to Redmond!
Redmond Firefighters Announce 2012 Neighborhood Schedule

Redmond, WA – The Redmond Firefighters Union Local 2829, IAFF, will be assisting Santa Claus again this year as he makes his tour through our Redmond Community sharing good cheer and holiday joy. Santa will be transported in the Union's antique fire truck with his very colorful helper, Buddy. A new tracking application will allow users to follow Santa’s route in real-time, using the web, tablets or smart phones. The new application will be available online beginning December 3rd at www.redmond.gov/santa

Santa and his volunteers will be accepting non-perishable food donations and unwrapped toys for Hopelink. The Firefighters Union will also match cash donations up to $500.
Santa and his elves will be in the locations listed below, though Santa may need to cancel a night's trip due to heavy rain, snow or mechanical problems (the antique fire truck isn't as reliable as Rudolph):
