FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) The Fort Worth Fire Department put a new recruit right to work on Wednesday!

Four-year-old Sailor is a cancer patient who loves fire trucks and firefighters… even more so now!

So on Wednesday, Fort Worth Firefighters and Police swore young Sailor in as an honorary Fort Worth firefighter and police officer.

He got to ride in a fire truck and even helped put out a dumpster fire at the training field.
