On Saturday, December 17, 2022, the Orange City Fire Department was blessed with the opportunity to partner with the Children’s Hospital of Orange County’s Hook and Ladder event and assist Santa Claus with a very special visit. Orange Truck One used its 100-foot aerial ladder to give Santa a lift, so he could wave to the children who are unfortunately confined to their hospital rooms.
Orange City Firefighters Local 2384 donated $1,100 to be used to buy toys and gift cards for the kids. The Orange City Fire Department has been involved with the event for over 30 years. This is a tradition that we look forward to every year, and it is truly a special event for everyone involved.
