Birmingham (AL) Fire and Rescue, Nearby Departments Go Pink

Birmingham Fire and Rescue brought out its pink fire engine, Corrine, to raise awareness.

Birmingham (AL) Fire and Rescue and several other departments in the area are teaming up with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation of Alabama by going pink, as well as selling T-shirts, reports cbs42.com.

Birmingham Fire and Rescue brought out its pink fire engine, Corrine, to raise awareness, according to the report. And, as part of the Pink Ribbon Campaign, the department is selling short- and long-sleeve T-shirts—$15 and $20 each, respectively—with all proceeds going to breast cancer research.

As it has done in recent years, Alabaster Fire Department decided to paint the hydrants in front of all the city’s fire stations pink, the report says. The pink hydrants are an effort to start conversations about and encourage testing for breast cancer.
