Santa’s Tour of Rosemont a Great Success
When Santa toured Rosemont on December 8 & 9 he not only brought much cheer to the community, he was able to bring much cheer from the community to many need kids in our area. This year RCA combined the Santa Parade with the annual RCA Toy Drive and collected a full truckload of new toys which were given to the Sheriff’s Department Toy Drive to be distributed to needy families in the area. This new version of the drive netted over five times the number of toys we would typically collect, and again proved the generous nature of the good people of Rosemont.
Equally rewarding was seeing the over one thousand families and kids of all ages who came out to greet Santa as he passed by atop the Special Operations Truck of the Sacramento Metro Fire Department from Station 62 on Bradshaw. This was the third year of the revived parade, long a tradition in Rosemont. Many of the parents along the route were reliving their own childhood memories and passing them on to their own kids. This is just one more way that Rosemont is such a special place to live and raise families.
Our thanks to all who made the Santa Parade a success, particularly the crews of the SMFD Station 62 on Bradshaw, our dozens of “elves” who followed the parade handing out information and candy and spreading holiday cheer, and the team of RCA leaders who coordinated everything. Another example of what makes Rosemont great!

How to Make Your Home Fire-Safer This Holiday Season
Roughly 47,000 house fires occur every year during the winter holiday season, resulting in $554 million in property damage and claiming 530 lives, according to the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA). Additionally, candle fires are four times more likely to occur during the holidays, and about 230 home fires start with Christmas trees every season. Here are some things you can do to make your home safer from fires this season:
decorating safely - with decorations carrying a UL or CSA label and placing Christmas trees and other decorations at least three feet from any heat source.
cooking safely - by keeping towels, wooden utensils, and other items that can catch fire away from stoves and ranges.
observing safely - by blowing out candles before you leave a room and keeping Christmas trees hydrated.
playing safely - by keeping lighters and matches away from children.
entertaining safely - by ensuring fire detectors are working properly and guests are aware of fire exits.
This is a good time to check and replace batteries in all your smoke and CO detectors. A bit of thought and care will help you and your family stay safe this holiday season.
