Many kids dream of joining the police force or becoming a firefighter, though most normally wait until adulthood before fulfilling it. That isn’t the case for a 16-year-old from Melbourne, Australia.

The youngster, whose identity cannot be revealed because of his age, converted a white Isuzu truck into his very own emergency vehicle, complete with sirens and flashing lights.

This wasn’t so he could simply get traffic to move out of the way, however. No, this teen was actually responding to distress calls, details of which he would receive via an app.

According to Seven News Australia, the teen responded to a number of traffic accidents in the Melbourne suburbs of St Kilda and Elwood and would provide help where possible.
