Ocean Pines Fire Department Supports Breast Cancer Awareness Month - Ocean Pines
Saturday, October 1, 2011

Just call it a temporary uniform change. The Ocean Pines Volunteer Fire Department Firefighter/Paramedics, staff and administrators will be wearing pink polo shirts on the job during the month of October to help raise awareness for breast cancer. During the month long event, the unusual pink breast cancer awareness shirts will replace the standard-issue navy shirts typically worn by firefighters while on duty. Also, the outside lights at the firehouses will have a bright pink hue at night to remind the community it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. “We are proud to display the pink colors during this month of breast cancer awareness in support of the many women and their families that have been affected by this disease and we hope that many in the community can support our efforts in raising awareness of breast cancer and how it touches us all,” said Bill Bounds, Division Captain for the Ocean Pines Volunteer Fire Department. Aside from non-melanoma skin cancer, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have identified breast cancer as the most common form of cancer in women. Breast Cancer Awareness Month, founded by AstraZeneca in 1985, is an international health campaign that takes place in October of each year. The month-long campaign strives to increase breast cancer awareness while raising funds for research into its cause, prevention, and cure.
