The change, however, is temporary.

On Friday morning, firefighters preparing for the 8 a.m. shift change unveiled the pink T-shirts in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Isler said staff will wear them throughout October.

He said just about every family is touched by cancer — including his.

Firefighters will be wearing these shirts during a public fire prevention event on Saturday, Oct. 4 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the former Winn Dixie parking lot on Rockingham Road. Activities include static displays of life-saving equipment, a bounce house, games and a car seat clinic.
