SOUTH SALT LAKE, Utah — A group of firefighters and police officers helped make a daddy-daughter dance special for the girls who did not have a father in attendance.

FOX13 reported that the South Salt Lake firefighters and police officers attended the Valentine’s Day daddy-daughter dance and escorted girls without fathers present onto the dance floor so they could be included.

“Sometimes we see these kids in less than desirable circumstances unfortunately, so it's nice to have a better, more fun interaction,” South Salt Lake Police Department Sgt. Darren Carr said.

The first responders attended the dance for the first time this year, but are expected to be invited back for future dances.

9-1-1 for girls who need dates for the daddy daughter dance.

South Salt Lake Police Department and South Salt Lake Fire Department put on their dancing shoes and came to the rescue of some darling little girls who needed dance partners.

Thanks City of South Salt Lake for hiring me for your Princess Ball (daddy daughter dance) I was extremely impressed with the South Salt Lake Police Dept and Fire Fighters who stepped in tonight to be fathers to all the young ladies that weren't fortunate to have a father dance with them tonight... What a great evening... #djhc #honeycombs801 #801djs #lifeofadj ccontractdjofsouthsaltlake #blessed
