Craig Teen With Muscular Dystrophy Inducted as Honorary Firefighter

Nearly 10 years ago, Craig’s JP Price was diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

The disease affects one’s ability to move freely and can cause frequent falls, trouble with standing or running, and some learning disabilities. It has rendered JP mostly bound to an electric wheelchair.

But in the past decade, JP, now 13 has had some real life heroes take him under their wings.

Members of the Craig Fire/Rescue team inducted him as an honorary firefighter Thursday night.

“One of the cool things I get to do as fire chief is promote firefighters,” said Craig Fire Chief, KC Hume. “Tonight, I get to do that again. But tonight, this is the first, at least to my knowledge, in the history of Craig Fire/Rescue, that we induct our first honorary Craig firefighter.”
