Westmont Fire Inspector Dave Zalesiak has been playing Santa in and around Westmont for 20 years, bringing joy and the magic of the holidays to children across the village. This year, Dave donned his Santa suit, jumped on a fire truck with his fellow firefighters, and visited about 100 children at Westmont Village Apartments.
“Dave takes time out of his busy schedule every year to make these kids day,” said Deputy Chief Steve Riley. “He loves doing it and we are very appreciative of his dedication and enthusiasm.”
“Westmont Village Apartments were so happy to have Dave and the fire department visit our families,” said a Westmont Village Apartments events coordinator. “The Firemen brought their decorated fire truck and let the kids look and ask questions. The Firefighters also brought gifts for the kids. We love having them visit this time of year.”
The Village of Westmont thanks Dave for going above and beyond for the community.
