According to operational details leaked to The Floyd County Times news staff, Mr. Claus, age unknown, will work in conjunction with the Prestonsburg Fire Department beginning at 4:30 p.m. on Monday, traveling all over the city aboard a fire engine.
Mr. Claus, who has a history of visiting the Big Sandy region before making his Christmas deliveries, said in a released statement that while there are exceptions, Prestonsburg children overwhelmingly lean toward the good. Claus insisted that his list had been double checked. The identity of those deemed “naughty” was not made public.
Operational plans indicate Santa's reindeer and sleigh (designation: SC1) would touchdown in an undisclosed location sometime Monday, where last-minute flight checks and plans would be made. From there he will rendezvous with city firefighters, who will be escorting Mr. Claus about the city, handing out candy along the way.
