CHRISTIANSBURG, Va (WDBJ7) The Christiansburg Fire Department welcomed its newest member on Tuesday.

3-year-old Parker Coleman has Leigh Syndrome. It's a a severe neurological disorder.

But of course that's not holding back Parker!

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.
