Local firefighters spread Christmas kindness at TMC for Children

FF Peds Christmas 018

Rural/Metro firefighters
Station 73

They weren’t dressed in your traditional Santa suits, but a group of Rural/Metro firefighters played St. Nick at TMC for Children. 

The guys from Station 73 paid a visit to our pediatric patients to hand out some adorable teddy bear stuffed stockings that were handmade by the residents at Strauss Manor.  They also gave each child a copy of the book Born to Wear Blue, written by local author Patty Vallance about children who dream about becoming firefighters when they grow up. 

Special thanks to Patty Vallance, the Greater Tucson Fire Foundation, Strauss Manor and Rural/Metro Fire for bringing a little Christmas cheer to these children!

  1. Hey, a blog, or maybe even a forum, for Firefighter Wives I think is a good idea. I get lonely too and siemtomes I feel like the Firehouse is the other woman and I even get jealous especially when my kids are acting up and he is at the station sleeping, lol! What’s up with that!But I totally understand about not starting anymore blogs too, it can all be so overwhleming at times. Hard to make those decisions.
