Rockville Volunteer Fire Department asks families who wish to see Santa to congregate at intersections and monitor the RVFD Facebook for live updates. Unfortunately it is not practical to drive down every street. Please do not follow Santa in your car as this is very dangerous and distracts the reindeer and may cause an accident. If your neighborhood is not on the schedule, please send RVFD a Facebook message or email

The Rockville Volunteer Fire Department is also selling Christmas Trees this year. Trees are being sold for $40 – $80 depending on their height, wreaths are $20 and tree stands are $40.
