Fire Brigade to tour Sequim for donations

Festive truck travels area Dec. 3-5

Santa patrols town once again with Clallam County Fire District 3 and Explorer Post 1003 for his annual Toy and Food Fire Brigade.

As tradition, the 1938 antique fire truck travels through Sequim from 5-9 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday, Dec. 3-5, seeking donations of toys, blankets, and food.

Listen in for festive music and look for the fire truck with Christmas lights on the following days:

• Dec. 3: West of Sequim Avenue from Fir Street to Pine Street

• Dec. 4: East of Sequim Avenue to North Blake Avenue

• Dec. 5: Emerald Highlands, Elk Creek Apartments and West Sequim Bay Road

• Dec. 6: Makeup day if inclement weather

Santa will hand out candy canes and hot chocolate will be available, too.

Food and monetary donations support the Sequim Food Bank while toys and blankets support Sequim Community Aid’s Toys for Sequim Kids on Dec. 11 at Sequim Prairie Grange, 290 Macleay Road.

Donations are also accepted at the Clallam County Fire District 3’s headquarters, 323 N. Fifth Ave., Sequim.

Santa’s Toy and Food Fire Brigade is a partnership between Clallam County Fire District 3, Explorer Post 1003 and IAFF Local 2933.
