CHRISTIANSBURG, Va (WDBJ) -- The Christiansburg Fire Department in Virginia welcomed its newest member on Tuesday.

Three-year-old Parker Coleman has Leigh Syndrome, a a severe neurological disorder. But of course that's not holding him back!

His one wish has been to ride on a firetruck, and he finally got to do that with the help of the Christiansburg Fire Department and Make-A-Wish.

The fire department showed up at Parker's house and he got that ride, plus lots of gear he'll need for his role as honorary firefighter.

About a dozen trucks showed up for the surprise.
