Fire Dept. saluting homebound kidsí birthdays
Alta Fire Department (AFD) understands during these unprecedented times, our children are making sacrifices as well. Your childís birthday means a lot to them, and during the COVID-19 pandemic, no school, social distancing and no groups larger than 10 has put a halt to such fun. The department wants to help make his/her day extra special. If your child (12 years and under) will celebrate a birthday during the government-ordered shutdown period, AFD will do its best to drive by your home, turn on the lights and sirens, and give a happy birthday shout-out (from a safe distance) to your child in hopes to make his/her day more memorable. (Please note - this only applies to the Alta fire district). To set up, contact call or text Chief Reetz at 712-229-1350. Please make sure to give a 48-hour notice to line up a crew.
