Fire Departments Will Drive By Your Birthday Kid In The Firetruck With Lights And Sirens Blazing 

The Gakona Fire Department would like to follow suit with other police and fire departments across the country in providing this service for our local elementary-aged kids in Gulkana, Gakona and even Chistochina.

If you have a young child with an upcoming birthday, please reach out to the fire department. Our firefighters would like to offer a "drive-by celebration" for your kids that cannot celebrate their birthdays with their friends this year because of COVID-19. 

The fire department will drive past your home with a firetruck with our lights, sirens and all that jazz!
This service is free of charge, available to our community residents and there will be no person to person contact. The fire department is  currently accepting drive-by scheduling throughout April and most likely, May. 

They hope they can make your kids' birthday a little brighter this year as we all work through this event.

If you are interested, please direct message the Gakona fire department Facebook page or email the Fire Chief at with the following information:

  • Address
  • Phone Number
  • Child's Name/Age
  • Child's Birthday
They will work to accommodate everyone, pending operational commitments and limitations.

Glenn-Rich VFD will be providing birthday celebration drive-by’s to children living in Tazlina, Copper Center, Silver Springs, and Glennallen area. 

Check out their Facebook pages for details.
