Porterville Firefighter Larry Segovia, who has been with the department for the past 10 years, is on a new mission, one he's proud to share with the community.
Segovia has published his first children’s book, “Is Fire a Tool?”, to help children recategorize fire as a tool and not a toy. Segovia’s 28-page children’s book is currently for sale on Amazon. He also has plans to continue educating children about fire through books and games.
“I was self published so really I just had to come up with the concept, which I already knew the message I wanted to get across,” said Segovia. “With the help from my wife, we just came up with something we thought was relatable and friendly to the child.”
With support from his wife Christina, Segovia put his pen to paper and in under a year his book was on the market.
