Clarence-Rockland firefighters to wear pink epaulettes

CLARENCE-ROCKLAND – October 12, 2017—Members of the Clarence-Rockland Fire Department are showing their support for breast cancer research by wearing pink epaulettes during October.

“There has been a long-standing connection between firefighters and risk of cancer, and many fire departments across the country have taken certain initiatives to show their ongoing support and increase awareness for breast cancer awareness,” said Fire Chief Brian Wilson.

Members of the Clarence-Rockland Professional Fire Fighters Association came up with the idea, and are coordinating the voluntary donations from members of the department. Firefighters can opt to make a donation to The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, and then wear their pink epaulettes to show their support.

“This is a great voluntary initiative from our members to support a great cause. Some organizations have ’casual Friday’ to raise money for charities. Because we need to be in uniform, I felt this was a good way to still show support and help raise money and awareness for breast cancer research,” Fire Chief Wilson said.

Firefighters will be wearing the pink epaulettes throughout Breast Cancer Awareness Month (October). Once collected, the department is hoping to have a group picture taken and make a cheque presentation to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
