Christmas Magic For A Firefighter's Son

Story by: Chas Konarski

(as seen on

Vernon fire fighters were busy today 12/20/15 sorting toys for the annual toys for Tykes drive set for delivery on Monday 12/21/15. Time was taken to present a special gift to the son of fire fighter Matt Lattimer, a member of Eng.441 company. Dominick, his 6 year old son who had a brain tumor, is recuperating after surgery and several months in and out of the hospital. Dominick is very proud of his father being a firefighter, and loves firetrucks. His father's captain, Dan Robertson, and many members of Eng.441 took an electric car that Dominick had and converted it into a special fire car. Over 40 hours went into the project but the results were a working electric fire car with plenty of lights! The look on his face when he uncovered the car was one of surprise and great joy! He immediately took it for a test drive in the parking lot with his cousins looking on. This will be a Christmas he will never forget.
