NSB fire fighters wearing pink
National Breast Cancer Awareness Month has New Smyrna Beach firefighters seeing pink again this year. Crews have been wearing pink uniform T-shirts and driving a pink fire engine when responding to emergency calls and working special events.
A pink fire engine has been rotating from station to station around the city to ensure residents in each quadrant get the opportunity to see it. This year, the pink vinyl may be signed by visitors to build a buzz and increase awareness.
The crews also are selling the T-shirts they're wearing to raise money for the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer annual walk on Oct. 26 in Daytona Beach, which is an annual fund raiser hosted by the American Cancer Society.
T-shirts are $15-$20 and may be purchased either at the Pink engine or at New Smyrna Beach Fire Station 51, 151 Williamson Blvd., behind Walmart. Short.
Wrapping the red fire engine in pink vinyl normally would cost several thousand dollars, but thanks to donations and help from Hawkeye Brothers Sign & Graphics, the cost was reduced from $4,000 to $1,400, which was split between the City and the New Smyrna Beach Professional Firefighters organization.
