Fremont Firefighters Going Pink
Throughout the month of October, Fremont Firefighters will be supporting "Susan G. Komen for the Cure" by replacing their blue work t-shirts and wearing a special-made pink uniform t-shirt to be worn as their "duty shirt" on their middle work shift. Wearing pink supports the cause and raises awareness in the fight against breast cancer.
Additionally, Fire Administration employees will also show their support for the cause by wearing pink each Wednesday in October.
Last year at the IAFF 50th Convention, 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 Fremont Fire Chief Bruce Martin and Local 1689.
