Fremont Fire Department going Pink
Submitted By Captain Steve Silva, Fremont FD
During the month of October, Fremont Firefighters, in support of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure, will lose their blue T-shirts for a Pink uniform T-shirt worn as a "duty shirt" on their middle work shifts.
Additionally, Fire Administration employees will be wearing a Pink polo on each Wednesday during the month of October. Wearing Pink supports women and raises awareness in their fight against Breast Cancer.
Two years ago, at the International Association of Firefighters 50th Convention, held in San Diego, delegates from the United States and Canada collectively supported and encouraged all IAFF members to participate in campaigns honoring women fighting cancer. Going Pink during the month of October has the endorsement of our Fire Chief and Fremont Firefighters Local 1689.
