"All the district personnel enjoy putting it on," said Division Chief Nathan Jeffries.
He says its an opportunity to connect with their community, teach kids about fire safety and put on a little bit of a show while doing it.
"We can look pretty scary when we are all geared up, and we don't want the kids to be scared of that," he said, in explaining why getting kids familiar with first responders is important in non-emergency situations.
