DECATUR, Ala. — Santa recruited the help of the Decatur Fire Department so he can see families before he goes back to the North Pole to get packed up for Christmas.

Crews tell us that Santa will be riding around Wednesday near elementary schools to hopefully be able to see everyone. They gave News 19 a schedule and streets they will travel down so you can make sure you don’t miss him.

They are unable to attend each school due to time constraints and they also noted they will not be able to stop at the locations.
