Firefighters to wear pink uniform shirts in support of cancer awareness

Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue firefighters are thinking pink – and wearing it, too – as part of a monthlong Passionately Pink campaign in support of breast cancer awareness.

“Firefighters exposed to carcinogens and other chemicals while on the job are disproportionately diagnosed with breast cancer – just one of many cancers linked to the work firefighters do,” spokesman Mike Jachles said in a news release.
