(Update Monday, April 6th: Rye FD has paused this program. No reason was provided.)
The Rye Fire Department not only keeps us safe, but wants to put a smile on the faces of birthday boys and girls. In the wake of COVID-19, that’s not easy.
“We want to let people know that we are available to do birthday drive-bys,” Andy Northshield, the vice president of the Rye Professional Fire Fighters Association told MyRye.com. “If people would like to have a small parade of fire trucks drive by their house and make a bunch of noise to help put a smile on their kid’s face on their birthday they can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If they do, one of the on duty crew will get back to them and square the details away.”
Wow, that’s raising the game. What an offer.
