Does someone in your family having a birthday while physical distancing restrictions are in place? Is the person celebrating their special day between the ages of 3 and 12, or over the age of 80?
If so, submit a request for Canmore Fire-Rescue to drive by your house in trucks with flashing lights to help celebrate your birthday! We are happy to offer this service, for a limited time, in partnership with the Canmore RCMP, Canmore AHS and Canmore Bylaw departments.
This is for birthdays only and not for any other celebrations such as anniversaries, retirements, etc.
We encourage your friends and neighbours who want to take part in a Drive-By Birthday to maintain physical distancing guidelines and stay two meters away from each other. If a crew comes to your home and there are more than 15 people gathered there, or you are not maintaining the appropriate distance guidelines, the drive-by will not occur.
Please note: We are first and foremost emergency responders. This service is not guaranteed as crews may be called to assist at an emergency. If your scheduled Drive-By Birthday doesn't happen, it means we were needed at an emergency elsewhere. Due to this uncertainty, we would advise that you manage expectations with the birthday boy or girl.
