MORRISTOWN, NJ - Just because we are all quarantined, doesn't mean that life's milestone aren't happening. Have you seen the videos of kids standing outside, while police officers and fireman drive by to make their day a little brighter?

Well, the men and women of the Morristown and Morris Township Fire Department and Police Department will be joining forces to wish youngsters a "happy birthday".

"We’ve all been asked to stay home, limit our movement, and keep our social distance", wrote the officers on social media. "For kids celebrating a birthday or other milestone, this means they can’t celebrate with friends and family in person. We want to step in and bring them a little happiness if we can".

The police and firemen will offer a public safety mini-parade. They will swing by with police cars and firetrucks, turn on lights and maybe hit the siren.

"It’s just our way of letting your child know they’re special and that we’re thinking of them on their very important day", they wrote.

For those interested, please contact our mini-parade coordinator, Lt. Heather Glogolich via email at or call our Community Policing Unit at (973) 326-7450. They will try to accommodate your request but need to handle all emergency calls first.
