Officials in nearby counties are working to make sure those with birthdays during the Covid-19 era of social distancing still get to feel special. 

In these times, it is now more than ever, a time to celebrate life.

Emergency responders from the Martin County Sheriffs Office, Loogootee Police Department, the Shoals Town Marshal, volunteer fire departments, EMS, Indiana State Police’s Jasper Post, and local Indiana Conservation Officers have committed to ensuring those special days are getting the attention they deserve.

Emergency services are offering “Birthday Patrols” past your front door, for anyone ages 1 to 101, complete with lights and maybe even some sirens depending on the time of day.

Officials will bring as many units as possible depending on the availability of their local heroes.

Please call the Sheriff’s Office at (812) 247-3726 at least a week ahead of the big day so officials can organize the birthday patrol.

Officer will not get out of vehicles, due to social distancing restrictions.
