Firefighters in Hamilton City were heroes again today this time being recognized for saving a Christmas tradition.

A service organization usually buys the gifts that are given to local children every December, and local firefighters do their part by transporting Santa and the gifts to the elementary school.

Earlier this week Hamilton City Fire Department Chief Hank Irich found out the gifts weren't going to arrive, and the event was going to be cancelled.

That didn't set well with the firefighters so they went into action, not saving a life like they usually do, but saving the holiday tradition.

They collected donations and shopped over at Winco and Food Maxx wrapping and delivering close to 500 gifts for the kids.

The Chief wore his Santa uniform, and his firefighters sported blue Santa hats.
