2012 Creve Coeur Fire Department Annual Santa Day
This is a tradition that is going on 31 years and it started as a way to burn old fuel out of the apparatuses and allow firefighters to stay familiar with locations of the fire hydrants. This is our way of giving back to the community that supports us all year long. We appreciate the help of our Santas, our helpers from the Boy Scouts, and others.
