UPDATE: This has been rescheduled to Tuesday.
Wilson Sadler of the Davidson Fire Department shares this news flash from the North Pole about Santa’s annual pre-Christmas visit. “Santa Claus will be in Davidson on Sunday evening, Dec. 16, for a brief pre-Christmas Eve visit, to review his route with the Davidson Fire Department.
“Santa will transfer from his sleigh to a fire engine for a ride about town between 6 and 8pm. As Santa’s time is limited, and turning around in cul-de-sacs and dead end streets is difficult, please observe from the entrance to the affected streets.
Thank you and a Merry Christmas.”

It has been a busy couple of weeks for the Davidson Fire Department, including calls for gas leaks, outside fires, cooking fires, and hazardous chemicals. Last Saturday, Davidson firefighters called for help from a Charlotte Fire Department hazardous materials team after detecting hazardous gases in a June Washam home, where carpet-cleaning chemicals had been used. Other calls included cooking fires and malfunctioning alarm systems at Davidson College. A tally of the past two weeks’ 28 medical calls may be found below, as well. Meanwhile, in case you were wondering, that siren and loudspeaker announcement Thursday morning on the Davidson College campus was a test.
The department also co-hosted the 30th Annual North Mecklenburg Christmas Parade, which had 2,831 participants on Dec. 1. (See a photo gallery, Dec. 1, 2012, “Christmas Parade: 2,831 marchers, thousands of watchers”
And keep an eye out on the main streets of Davidson Sunday night, between 6 and 8: Word is that Santa will be making his annual pre-holiday inspection on a fire truck.
