Operation Santa’s Sleigh spreads holiday cheer

First responders spread holiday cheer Wednesday night by visiting children’s and veterans’ hospitals with their emergency lights activated.

Dayton was among seven Ohio cities participating in 2022 Operation Santa’s Sleigh Wednesday after it was rescheduled due to last week’s winter storm.

The Montgomery County Law Enforcement Memorial Association in cooperation with Light Ohio Blue along with support from the Ohio Association of Chiefs of Police, Buckeyes State Sheriff’s Association, Ohio State Highway Patrol and the International Association of Fire Fighters will contribute, according to a press release from The Montgomery County Law Enforcement Memorial Association.

A procession of emergency vehicles with emergency lights activated was scheduled to depart at 6:30 p.m. from the Dayton Airport Expo Center, 3900 McCauley Drive, Dayton, to head to the hospital.
