 A short service honoring the life of Fire Chief Montopoli was held and his name was added to the Davie Police and Fire Memorial located within the Bamford Sports Complex in Davie.

Santa's Express

 This year's Santa's Express was an overwhelming success. Santa made 250 stops on December 12th - 14th Santas Express 2016.JPGwith the help of Pembroke Pines Firefighters. Hundreds of children were surprised to see the fire engine arrive to their houses with Santa Clause, his elves, and of course, gifts.

 Santa's Express is a wonderful event held each year and benefits a number of charities including Children's Harbor, Legal Aid, and Child Net. We also assisted 60 families within Pembroke Pines and local churches.

 A Special Thanks to Santa and all of the volunteers who came out to make this another memorable experience.
