The Bakersfield Fire Department will be deploying the Christmas Eve Task Force again this year, marking the 26th anniversary for this successful program which our firefighters and community members enjoy at the Christmas Holiday. The Fire Department Task Force consists of several Bakersfield Firefighters, “Sparky” the firedog, and of course Santa Claus himself.

With the support of several sponsors and the generosity of our firefighters, the Bakersfield Fire Department purchases toys to give away during this wonderful event. Santa and Sparky will be helping the Bakersfield Firefighters deliver these toys on the “big red” Fire Department sleigh to various hospitals, foster care sites, and other facilities throughout our community.

This program is near and dear to the hearts of many Bakersfield Firefighters, and we look forward to creating memories again on Christmas Eve this year.

Bakersfield City Firefighters work throughout the year to assist various non-profit organizations and groups within the community to make the lives of those in need less difficult. This annual Christmas Eve tradition signals the year-end finale of those efforts.
