FIRST PHOTO: Wearing his own red suspenders and khaki turnout pants, Bode Golberg, 4, may well be the happiest kid on Maui on Friday morning as he and his classmates from Doris Todd Preschool visit the Paia Fire Station. As Bode hustles off for a demonstration after taking a tour of Engine 2, firefighter Gavin Fujioka helps Tia Schultz down from the fire engine.
SECOND PHOTO: Maui firefighter Cody Cordeiro shows Doris Todd preschoolers the equipment he wears when fighting a fire. He taught the kids that while he may look scary, during a fire in their house they should go to him for help, not run away because they are afraid.
