Grand Island firefighters can't wear
their special pink shirts while on duty.
Firefighters created a pink breast
cancer awareness shirt as part of Breast Cancer Awareness month in October.
The shirts cost $20-dollars each and
the proceeds go to a mammogram fund to aid women who cannot afford to get one.
The firefighters planned to wear them to raise awareness and money for the
Grand Island Fire Chief Cory Schmidt said
October is also fire prevention safety month and he believes it's important to
have firefighters in their regular uniforms.
He said they'll be giving educational
talks to area schoolchildren and the public and wanted them to be in uniform.
