Pine Bluff Fire and Emergency Services Chief Shauwn Howell was a guest on the Oldies 101.3 morning show Friday and told Greg Horne and Will Jenkins that the type of fires his department responds to tends to change around Thanksgiving.

Howell talked about the Santa truck, a tradition that is continuing and since its inception, has changed from just a few lights and a radio to play music to multiple lights and a sound system. The truck goes to a different area every night from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. and a full schedule of locations can be found on Deltaplexnews under the community tab.

He said that because of COVID-19, things like interacting with children that have been done in the past are not possible.
