Orange County EMS Employees Wear Pink for the Cure


ORANGE COUNTY, NC (October 5, 2012)—The Orange County Department of Emergency Services (EMS) is joining firefighters and EMS employees across the country in recognizing and raising money for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This marks the fourth year the County has participated in the awareness campaign.

During the month of October, Orange County EMS will show its support by allowing its employees to wear pink T-shirts, featuring a logo, which was custom designed for the department. In addition to the T-shirts, the logo is also displayed on the EMS vehicles.

Orange County EMS is prominently displaying the values outlined in its mission, "Care – Service – Survive," by bringing both cancer and breast cancer awareness to the community—wearing the pink T-shirts while on duty.

"Each of us has been touched one way or another by this disease. We want to rally the community and bring continued awareness, so we can work together to find a cure," said Colonel Frank Montes de Oca, director of Orange County EMS.

The department views this as an excellent way to honor those who are fighting the battle, while remembering others who have lost the fight.

For more information about the Pink T-shirt Campaign, please call Doris Cecil at the Orange County Department of Emergency Services at 919.245.6129.
