Renton's fire crews to wear pink to promote breast-cancer awareness
Renton's firefighters will go pink next week to promote awareness during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
The city's firefighters, members of Renton Fire Fighters Local 864, will wear pink fire department t-shirts as they go about their daily duties at the city's fire stations Oct. 15-19.
They'll also do fundraisers as part of a nationwide campaign supporting women in their fight against cancer.
At the IAFF 50th convention in August 2010, delegates adopted a resolution to encourage IAFF members to participate in campaigns honoring women fighting cancer.
