Beverly Hills Fire Department along with the Beverly Hills
Firefighters’ Association will support Breast Cancer Awareness Month by
trading the blue on-duty uniform t-shirts for pink t-shirts in October.
The purpose of this BHFD and BHFA collaboration is to raise awareness of
the importance of annual screenings, especially for women who are over
the age of 40.
"I'm pleased to support the members of the BHFD and the members of the
BHFA who made this proposal in their effort to bring attention to the
life changing result of breast cancer," said Fire Chief Ralph Mundell. "Our organization remembers those
who have lost their battle with breast cancer, supports those who are
currently affected by breast cancer, and remind all men and women of the
need for periodic exams."
