Mother Jessica tells ABC4 News the fire officials and officers both said they’d be honored to be apart of Judson’s special day. Jones said, “we didn’t tell my son they were coming so when he found out the fire trucks and policemen were coming down our street for his birthday he was awestruck.” Friends and family also decorated their cars and threw out candy along with presents out their windows.
