The Alpha Fire Company is pleased to announce that once again that Santa will take time out his busy schedule to visit the Centre Region on Christmas Eve. The Alphas will provide the Big Guy with two of our very own sleighs while he is in town. Several Alphas have been deputized as special elves and are working diligently to make sure that our trucks will be up to his standards.
Using Christmas magic, as only Santa himself could do, he will manage to be in two places at the same time with an east and west route. To download the detailed route please click here.
Again this year, Santa and the Alpha Elves have teamed up with members of the Nittany Amateur Radio Club to let girls and boys watch the special sleighs move through the Centre Region in real time. Anyone can watch. On any Internet connected computer point any browser to www.aprs.fi. After a few moments a map will appear. It might come up in Helsinki, Finland – don’t worry. Just type ‘State College, PA’ in the box on the right labeled ‘Address, City, or Locator’ and press ENTER on the keyboard. The map will move to State College and you will see Santa-1 and Santa-2 moving on the map. You’ll be able to see when he is near your neighborhood. You can also follow the SantaRun on Twitter by following carmineprestia hashtag #alphasantarun
Remember that Santa and his Alpha Elves are firefighters and if there is a fire call or other emergency they have to go to protect all the citizens of the Centre Region.
