When Melissa Reid expectantly had 7 of the 8 families invited to her son’s birthday party cancel, she decided to try plan B. She called the Harrisburg Fire Department to ask for a quick tour because her son Jackson, loves fire trucks. Check out how they went above and beyond the call of duty in Harrisburg!
Thanks Harrisburg Fire Department!
From the Harrisburg Fire Department Facebook page:
We received a call mid morning from a mother asking if she could bring her son to the fire station to look at the fire trucks. This is not an odd request for us at all but then the mother explained that today was this young man‘s third birthday, and this morning all but one of his birthday guests had canceled on him and he was devastated. Well the guys at the station weren’t going to let him not have a birthday party. We quickly ran to the store to get birthday balloons and cupcakes and all three crews gathered at Station 3 to await his arrival. The birthday boy was pretty surprised to have nearly 15 Harrisburg members waiting to celebrate his birthday. He got a tour of the station and of the rig, and to top it off we all sang him happy birthday and watched him blow out his candles. Happy birthday Jackson we hope you had a fantastic day!!!!
