Today, Metro Fire placed our Cancer Awareness Engine into service for the months of October and November.
At the ceremony this morning, Fire Chief Mark Wells said it best, "To all of you battling cancer right now, or who have lost someone to cancer, we hope this pink engine makes your day just a little bit better. Because we don't just work in this community, we are part of this community, and we care about every person in this community."
The engine will rotate through our District, running calls out of five different fire stations. If you see it out and about, feel free to stop and take a picture. If you'd like to place a message on the engine "In Memory of" someone who lost their life to cancer, we have adhesive stickers to do just that. Join us in making this fire engine a special remembrance in our community.
The cost to wrap the engine was 100% covered by generous donations from:
Vehicle Wraps, Inc.
Sacramento Area Firefighters Local 522
Longyear, Odea & Lavra, LLP and
Liebert Cassidy Whitmore.
A huge thanks goes out to each of them!
The engine will be at the following stations:
