Tyson Ford
Tyson Ford's best day ever

For one glorious day, the Galax Volunteer Fire Department had an extra firefighter at their side — 16-year-old Tyson Ford.

Tyson, who has Down’s Syndrome, has been fascinated with firefighters since he was three, said his mom, Kyla.

She and her husband, Steven, have been teaching Functional Fitness classes at the firehouse on Wednesday nights. The discipline is meant to incorporate moves the firefighters would naturally engage in as part of their jobs, and strengthen their ability to perform these actions.
