The Westminster Fire Department participates in many community events to actively promote fire and life safety and to support charitable causes. Here's what's coming soon:
November 1- 14 - Santa Visit Lottery Sign Up
Westminster Fire Department has received confirmation from the North Pole that Santa is available to visit kids in Westminster December 1-6. If you are interested in receiving a visit, now is the time to sign up for the Santa visit lottery. The Santa program, a tradition of the Westminster Fire Department since 1935, includes the arrival of Jolly St. Nick via fire truck, time for kids to let Santa know their Christmas wishes (and take photos), then good boys and girls receive a candy gift as Santa leaves. Visits are scheduled geographically, sometime between 6–8 p.m. from December 1-6. Registration for this program is a lottery system; entries for a Santa visit are ONLY accepted from 8 a.m., Nov. 1 through 5 p.m., Nov. 14. When registering, provide your full name, address, and phone number (reservations cannot be made without complete information, limit one registration per household). Register for a chance at a Santa visit online: http://www.cityofwestminster.us/santa. All complete requests will be entered in a drawing; notification of the lottery results will begin Saturday, November 19. For more information call 303-658-4500.
November 15 - December 12 - Holiday Charity Drive
Westminster firefighters are coordinating the holiday charity drive again this year. Green donation bins will be placed in fire stations, libraries, rec centers and other city facilities for drop-off of toys, clothing and non-perishable food items. New toys/clothes are preferred, but gently-used are also appreciated. Donations are distributed to the Have a Heart Project, Jeffco Foster Care, Westminster FISH food bank and the Westminster Police Santa Cops program. Call 303-658-4500 for more information.
Every year fires start because of faulty products. One way to be safe is to stay apprised of recalls through the public notices by UL and the US Consumer Product Safety Commission.
