Photo of the Week: Boy, 4, with cancer becomes fire chief for a day


Calling all fire photographers: FireRescue1 wants to see your pictures! The next time you come across something inspiring, take out the camera and submit it to FireRescue1! Just remember to include your name, agency information and brief background information on the picture. 

This week's Photo of the Week shows how the McAllen (Texas) Fire Department and Make-A-Wish Rio Grande Valley went above and beyond to make a young cancer patient's dreams come true.

Justin Perez, 4, wanted to become a firefighter, but the McAllen Fire Department took his wish a few steps further and promoted him all the way to fire chief! Chief Perez spent the day with crews at the station and got the chance to spray a fire hose while dressed in his own custom gear.
