You’re never too old to be a hero – not even if you’re 97 years old.

Bill Grun of Doylestown, Pennsylvania was given the birthday wish of a lifetime when firefighters from the Doylestown Fire Company No. 1 showed up at his retirement home.

The civil servants offered Bill a position on the Ladder 9 – also known as the biggest truck in their arsenal – as an honorary firefighter in recognition of his special day.

The spry senior delightedly accepted and was given a VIP ride around town. Bill was even allowed to sound the sirens at will.

The surprise was orchestrated by his retirement home Wesley Enhanced Living, as part of their WEL Wishes Program.

Bill is reportedly already planning his 98th birthday around a helicopter ride.
