A little guy by the name of Joel was getting ready to celebrate his 8th birthday and decided on a SWAT themed party…Why, because WHY NOT!! Sadly, there weren’t very many responses to the invites sent out. His mom posted on a local mom’s group’s Facebook page encouraging other mom’s to bring there kids and be part of the party!


Another mom who was part of the Facebook group happened to work at the Emergency Services Center, saw Nicole’s post and called for backup to rescue this birthday party in distress.



So she went to work the next day at the police department  and told them about Joel’s party. “It’s a SWAT-themed birthday party, but no one’s coming,” she said. The response was instant: “We are.”
