**Due to overwhelming response, the Birthday Brigade will not accept any more requests at this time. Thanks to everyone who participated and we hope it made your birthdays special!**
We know the current Stay-At-Home order isn't much fun, especially for kiddos celebrating a birthday at a time when parties aren't allowed. The Pinehurst Police and Fire Departments are here to help! Now through the end of our Stay-At-Home order (currently set to end on May 8), parents or guardians of youngsters living within the Village of Pinehurst can submit a request for a visit from the Birthday Brigade.
- Kids must be turning 12 or younger
- Must be residents of the Village of Pinehurst
- Must give us a minimum of 48 hours notice before your requested drive-by date.
- Your requested date must be May 8 or earlier. This is the last day the current Stay-At-Home order is in effect. If the order is extended, we will extend our program.
What is the Birthday Brigade?
The Birthday Brigade is a limited-time offer during the Stay-At-Home order to bring some birthday cheer to our youngest residents! Both a police and fire vehicle will drive past your home at a pre-arranged time with lights, sirens, and waves for your kiddo on their birthday.
Who Can Participate?
This program is open to families living within the Village of Pinehurst limits with a child turning 12 or younger.
When Do I Submit the Request?
Requests for a visit from the Birthday Brigade should be made at least 48 hours in advance for a visit between now and Friday, May 8. If the Stay-At-Home order is extended, this offer will be as well. Please note: Requests should be submitted by a parent or guardian.
Can I Request a Specific Day/Time?
First responders will do their best to make their visit on your child's actual birthday, but exact timing will be impacted by emergency call volume as well as the number of requests for a particular date.
Why Do You Need My Phone Number?
Once you've made your submission, a member of staff will be in touch to coordinate a time for units to drive past your home.
What if My Child Recently Celebrated a Birthday During the Stay-At-Home Order?
Backdated birthdays as early as March 30, the day the Stay-At-Home order went into effect, will be considered on a case-by-case basis as time and availability of our first responders allows. We will do our best to accommodate those whose birthdays have recently passed.
