Ten-year veteran firefighter Michael Alegre says he still loves his job as an engineer for the Lodi Fire Department. But he says the best part isn’t running into burning buildings or pulling on his firefighting gear.
“My favorite thing is when I meet a little boy or girl and get to show them around the engine,” he said. “Their eyes get so big, and they are so excited.”
