Cos Cob Fire Police Patrol to Host Operation Santa

The Cos Cob Fire Police Patrol, Inc, “The Patrol,” will host “Operation Santa,” a benefit in support of this all-volunteer agency celebrating 93 years of service to the Town of Greenwich.

The Cos Cob Fire Police Patrol volunteers will deliver holiday cheer complete with Santa and The Grinch on December 5, 6, 12, 13, 19, and 20.

Santa and The Grinch will be escorted through Greenwich to deliver your pre-wrapped holiday presents to your children. The joy on your children’s faces will warm your heart and make a lasting memory for years to come. Because of COVID-19 there will be safety guidelines in place, but have no fear, Santa and The Grinch will make sure your little ones still get a photo! To participate, please sign up on the website with your desired day and time for Santa to come by.

In lieu of the Cos Cob Fire Police benefit this year, the donations made for this special delivery will help offset funds that would have been raised at that benefit. Please join us at

Protecting the Town of Greenwich since 1927, the Cos Cob Fire Police Patrol is an all-volunteer, not-for-profit organization dedicated to protecting the residents of the Town of Greenwich since 1927.

The Patrol provides a broad spectrum of services to residents and first responders including firefighting, salvage operations, traffic and scene control at emergencies. One of the few remaining nationwide organizations which specialize in the art of salvage work, The Patrol specially trains its members to protect valuable personal property, inside of a home or business that could otherwise be destroyed due to fire, water or smoke damage.

The Patrol proudly serves the entire town of Greenwich and is under the command of its own Chief.

Last year, The Patrol responded to over 1,000 emergency calls. The Patrol’s dedicated members are volunteers who train and donate their time solely out of love for what they do.

Each of the 25 service members of The Patrol must train for over 100 hours to qualify for their part in the organization.

Members of the Patrol are a diverse group of men and women from many professions. In addition to service members, the associate, honorary and veteran members volunteered over 5,000 hours to the Town and its citizens through community outreach, support, meetings and training in 2019 alone. They don’t stop. Whether it is learning or giving of themselves to the community, members of The Patrol are dedicated to serving the needs of the citizens of the Town of Greenwich.

The Mission of the Cos Cob Fire Police Patrol, Inc. is to protect commercial and residential dwellings from smoke, water and fire damage during and after a fire. To direct traffic, provide scene control and other support roles as requested by the Greenwich Fire Department or the Greenwich Police Department at any type of incident.

Cos Cob Fire Police Patrol, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
