Our Programs

Annual Santa Run

The Arlington Santa Run is a 28 year-old community tradition that runs for 10 nights in December to bring Santa and a bit of holiday cheer to the otherwise dark and dreary nights. The Arlington Fire Department escorts Santa through the city on a decorated fire engine collecting donations for the Arlington Community Food Bank.

The Santa Run truly shows the commitment to community service that the employees of the City of Arlington, as well as the residents and businesses of Arlington possess.

Free Blood Pressure Screenings

The City of Arlington Fire Department is available to assist citizens in maintaining a healthy heart by offering free blood pressure screenings. Residents may stop by any one of our three fire stations during normal working hours throughout the year for a screening by one of the staff. Availability of staff is dependent upon call volume.
