The firefighter says his son's bed has its own pump panel with parts taken off of a salvage truck with a switch panel that " controls all of the lights on top as well as a siren sound that was stolen out of an old toy firetruck he had broken."

Inside the truck bed is 20-inch monitor that streams television and movies, a ventilation fan, and even a radio to listen to fire dispatch.
