The Winnetka Fire Department can help celebrate birthdays! If someone in your home between the ages of 2 and 10 has a birthday during the Stay at Home order, you can request a birthday salute from the Fire Department. Birthday salutes will be conducted between 3 and 4 PM, permitting Engine 28’s availability (they will not be available if called to an emergency), and will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. Salutes will consist of a stop, siren, and flashing lights. No contact will be made, social distancing must be observed, and a birthday salute cannot cause a gathering of more than 10 individuals in one place to occur, or the engine will have to leave immediately.
To request a birthday salute, fill out the form found here and a representative from the Fire Department will follow up with you.
The Winnetka Police Department will conduct Birthday FaceTime appointments with an officer. To schedule one, please call 847-501-6034 between 8 AM and 4:30 PM Monday-Friday.
