Santa Patrol


The Jackson Mills Fire Company is honored each year by the North Pole.  Shortly after Thanksgiving, The Fire Chief makes a special trip to Santa’s workshop where he gets to meet Santa Claus and the lead Elf’s.

During the Chief’s visit, they discuss the secret plans for touring Jackson NJ so that Santa can meet with all of the wonderful residents of Jackson Fire District No. 4.
