BRYAN COUNTY, GA – November 27, 2018 – When the Bryan County Emergency Services personnel are not fighting fires or saving lives, these first-responders are helping Santa reach his favorite people – the families of Bryan County. Thanks to a longstanding tradition made possible by Bryan County Emergency Services, Santa will again be visiting a number of area neighborhoods this holiday season. Hitching a ride on a bright red fire truck, jolly old St. Nick will spread holiday cheer to the community’s children, cruising down residential roads and collecting toys to benefit boys and girls in need.
Not only will he be visiting neighborhoods, but North Bryan County residents can enjoy breakfast with him, too! BCES is hosting “Breakfast with Santa” in Ellabell. Children will enjoy free pancakes and sausage, provided by BCES, as well as plenty of educational fire-prevention activities and other fun projects. The guest of honor, jolly old Kris Kringle, will join in the festivities, taking photos with attendees and listening intently to excited little ones recite their Christmas wish lists. “Breakfast with Santa” will take place 8 a.m.- 11 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 15 at Station 7, 5595 Highway 204 in Ellabell. Admission is free and open to the public, but donations of new toys would be appreciated.

“We are looking forward to bringing the joy of Christmas to our community and their families with our different Santa traditions,” Bryan County Emergency Services Fire Chief Freddy Howell said. “Have your children greet Santa from the fire truck or bring them to breakfast! Both will be great events for
your kids to enjoy. And if you’re able to give him a gift or two on his runs to deliver to another child in need, Santa and the kids will be grateful.”
