Jacksonville Firefighters Going Pink

Firefighters Wearing Pink To Promote Breast Cancer Event

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Sending a clear message that it supports Jacksonville's women and their fight against cancer, Jacksonville's fire fighters will be going pink for the rest of September.

Beginning Friday, Jacksonville's Fire Fighters will sport pink T-shirts to honor women who are battling cancer.

The two-week event will feature the arrival of the Pink Heals Tour, a fleet of pink fire engines that travel the nation with a mission of raising awareness to cancers that women fight, like breast cancer.

The change to pink uniform shirts will not cost the taxpayers. Jacksonville's fire fighters funded the project through their charitable foundation, Jacksonville Fire Fighter Charities.

Visitors can sign the name of a loved one on any one of the pink fire engines that will be on hand. The event will start at 3 p.m. at the St. John's Town Center. The after-event party will take place at 6 p.m. Sept. 29 at Suite Lounge in the Town Center.
