Fire department birthday celebrations - yay or nay?
Yesterday, one of our neighbors was celebrating her daughter's birthday and got the fire department to drive by. There was tons of honking and a lot of noise. While her daughter (who was turning 7) was happy, I couldn't help but wonder if these fire department celebrations are the best idea. If I hadn't known the trucks were there for a birthday, I would have been so alarmed - it feels almost irresponsible for these emergency services to be using their resources for this, especially now. Am I overthinking this?
