Here at the Town of Westlake, we know the current Stay Home orders aren’t much fun, particularly for our youngest residents celebrating a birthday at a time when parties aren’t allowed. The Keller Police and Westlake Fire-EMS Departments are here to help, though! Now through the end of our Stay Home orders (currently set to end on April 30), parents or guardians of youngsters living in Keller or Westlake can submit a request for a visit from the Birthday Brigade.
What is the Birthday Brigade?
A limited-time offer during Stay Home orders to bring some cheer to our smallest citizens! 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 city limits of Westlake with a child turning 12 or younger. Westlake residents will be visited by Keller Police and Westlake Fire-EMS.
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 Thursday, April 30. If Stay Home orders are extended, this offer will be as well. Please note: Requests should be submitted by a parent or guardian.
What if My Child Recently Celebrated a Birthday During the Stay Home Order?
Backdated birthdays as early as March 25, the day Stay Home orders began in Tarrant County, 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.
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 I Live in a Gated Community?
No problem! First responders have access to your neighborhood.
