Anna (IL) Fire and Rescue Department Offers to Brighten Birthdays

The Anna Fire and Rescue Department is offering to send a fire truck — with its lights on — to help local residents celebrate their birthdays during the Shelter at Home order, reports WSIU NPR.

Public Information Officer Scott Bennett says the timing worked out because their new firefighters need to complete their driver training requirement.

The department has already done a handful of birthday drive-by celebrations and have two more scheduled this week.
