"Celebrating Our Fire Department Children"

The Charleston Firefighter Support Team, along with the CFD Wives' Club and the CFD Retirees' Program members, is moving along with our preparations for a special entry in the Annual Charleston Christmas Parade, being held on December 4 this year.   We have secured the reservation for our parade float to be titled "Celebrating Our Fire Department Children" and invite all of our CFD children to join us to ride on the float in the parade.  This idea came from our desire to do something special for our fire department children this year and this parade is always a highlight of the holiday season for our community. We will have our Team's Engine 11 and Engine 8 escorting the float to give us additional room to accommodate all who wish to participate with us.  We are asking that all of the children be dressed in something red such as a shirt, blouse, jacket or sweater to add to the holiday theme.  Parents are invited to ride with their children, as space permits, or to walk along beside with our Team members.  Please call the Team office at (843) 225-3850 to let us know if you wish to participate so we can plan for how many to expect. We look forward to seeing you there!
