TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Several Rural/Metro firefighters played Santa on Monday for the patients at Tucson Medical Center for Children.

The pediatric patients received a special treat as firefighters from Rural/Metro Station 73 delivered teddy bear stuffed stockings and the book Born to Wear Blue, by local author Patty Vallance about children who dream of becoming firefighters when they grow up.   Each stocking had been handmade by residents at Strauss Manor, according to TMC for Children. 

TMC for Children would like to thank Patty Vallance, the Greater Tucson Fire Foundation, Strauss Manor and Rural/Metro Fire for bringing some Christmas cheer to these very special patients.
