Fire & Iron MC Surprise Lowcountry Firefighter’s Family With Christmas Cheer

Berkeley County, SC – This year’s Christmas wasn’t going to be easy for one lowcountry firefighter, whose youngest son is currently hospitalized awaiting a heart transplant. The situation was brought to the attention of the Station 28 chapter of the Fire and Iron Motorcycle Club who decided something needed to be done. Gathering donations which included toys for the family and even a few gifts for the parents, a plan was made to make the delivery extra special. The group met at Caromi’s fire station where Santa himself joined in on the action. With a convoy made of firetrucks and motorcycles, the posse made their way to the family’s home, with plenty of holiday cheer to spare.

The reception was filled with both excitement and emotion as the presents were delivered as the entire neighborhood gathered outside their doors, amazed at the sheer scale of the entire operation. It’s not every day that Santa himself makes a house call in broad daylight, riding in on a 1969 Mack CF600 none the less. Among the gifts the family received, a few very special ones stood out above the rest; a handmade quilt signed by everyone who helped make this entire thing possible and an offer made by the membership of the Motorcycle Club to watch the family’s children allowing mom and dad an honest “date night.” We wish Firefighter Brown’s family the best, not just for this Christmas, but also for the health of his youngest child.

From the family to yours, we wish you all a very merry and safe Christmas.
