This Hispanic Heritage Month Xfinity presents ‘Los Lideres’: Highlighting Houston’s Hispanic Heroes.

This week we highlight Houston’s own Fire Chief Sam Peña. The 24-year veteran of fire service and Houston’s fire chief since 2016, Peña tells us his upbringing from immigrant parents and how important it is to be a leader, especially in a field that is as dangerous as battling fires and saving lives. More importantly, he tells us the impact of reaching back and bringing others with you will change the community.
