The fire truck pulls up outside the school. There is a crisis inside: not one that can be resolved by spreading water, but rather care and love. “It is easy to underestimate the positive impacts one can make in a child’s life, because the seeds we sow today, don’t always produce fruit immediately,” Los Alamos firefighter David Apodaca said. Apodaca and eight other Los Alamos firefighters are mentoring young kids as part of a Big Brothers Big Sisters, BBBS, program called Bigs with Badges. Each week they meet with kids, ages five through 10, during lunchtime and recess and offer themselves as consistent and positive role models. “Firefighters got into this profession because we care about people and want to be a positive presence in people's lives,” LAFD Firefighter Danny McBride said.
