Default Christmas Lights

Have been reading many discussions on here regarding this subject.

I am so busy with work I decided to google a local search for light hanging, in the past I have used the Fire Station as the money goes to charity, in any event I am not a WagJag fan however look at this one

That is very interesting! I never heard of the fire department doing that!

How do they handle that? Do you just call them up and they come over and install the lights and then do you make a check to the fire department? Or how does that work?

What made you decide to choose someone else to do it this year?

I am still using the firestation, I was just curious who else in my area performs this service.

In the past I have always just stopped in and made an appointment for them to come to the house, they do not charge a lot and the funds go to I believe Christmas Daddy's, or some type of Christmas fund for kids.

That is really fantastic they offer that! I never heard of that before.

What kind of price range do you think they charge for an average house? Have you ever seen them perform this service for commercial properties too?

Oh and are they paid or volunteer Fire Fighters?
