Christmas Eve morning, Summit firefighters contact the pediatric floor at Summit's Overlook Medical Center to determine how many presents are needed for children that have been admitted to the hospital. Once they have a list, firefighters shop for -- and wrap -- the presents.

Next, Summit Fire Department and its FMBA Local 54 members escort Santa Claus to Overlook for an annual Christmas Eve visit with pediatric floor patients.  

“The Summit Fire Department appreciates the doctors, nurses and medical center staff who help to make these special holiday visits possible,” said City of Summit Fire Chief Eric Evers. “Summit FD has been participating in this event for the past 31 years, and it is a highlight of the holidays for us all.”
