Carrollton Volunteer Fire Department conducted landing zone (LZ) operations at 1130 and 1200 Saturday 7 December 2013 to facilitate the travel of Santa Claus to the USMC "Toys for Tots" event at Charlie Daniels Racing on IWIP Road in southern Carrollton. Santa arrived at Station-10 and Carrollton VFD volunteers crewing apparatus Rescue-10 established the first LZ to enable the Nightingale air ambulance crew to pick up Santa when weather conditions would not permit a flight to Williamsburg as originally planned. After seeing the Jolly Old Elf off safely, the Carrollton engine crew then proceeded to Isle of Wight Industrial Park to set up another LZ for his arrival at Toys for Tots. Both LZ operations were successful and Santa continued on his way bringing joy and gifts to children of all ages assisted by the volunteers of Carrollton VFD!
