LAKE ODESSA, Mich. — Sunday afternoon, the Lake Odessa Police Department (LOPD) announced via Facebook t hat they would be offering the service of firetrucks and police cars for children in the Lake Odessa area whose birthdays fall during COVID-19.

Families with children in the Lake Odessa area whose birthday coincides with Governor Whitmer's 'Stay Home, Stay Safe' order are free to direct message (DM) the station's facebook page with an address and the date of birth.

On that fateful day, the station will send a firetruck and/or a police car to the residence and activate our emergency lights to wish your child a Happy Birthday.

While they will not be able to allow tours of our vehicles or pass out stickers, LOPD wants to offer these small gestures to the community while still remaining actively focused on serving the community.

If you live in the Lake Odessa area and your child's birthday falls during the Stay at Home order, you are encouraged to DM LOPDhere.
