replacement vehicles include 27 Dodge Chargers
BREVARD COUNTY • PALM BAY, FLORIDA – One of the new replacement patrol vehicles deployed Friday is detailed to represent Cancer Awareness Month.
The 2014 Chevy Impala is detailed with the same new logo design being placed on the fleet of about 30 new replacement vehicles; only in pink letters with the pink cancer ribbon that symbolizes cancer awareness.
“We wanted to not only showcase the new design on our vehicles, but thought it would be fitting to deploy this one for cancer awareness,” said Chief Doug Muldoon.
“We hope the public will do its part both in their support for finding a cure and in practicing cancer awareness and prevention.”
The replacement vehicles include 27 new Dodge Charges and 2 new Impalas. Only one vehicle is being outfitted with the pink symbols for the month of October. The vehicles were purchased with the use of forfeiture funds seized from a federal case.
Firefighters Begin Annual Cancer Awareness Campaign
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – The Palm Bay Firefighters Community Benevolent announces its annual t-shirt campaign in support of breast cancer awareness.
The campaign seeks to raise money through the sale of t-shirts sporting the Palm Bay Firefighters Community Benevolent logo on the front and a fire helmet embedded in flames on the back with the words “courage”, “hope” and “support”.
“It’s our way of showing our support for a cure and encouraging the community to do so as well,” said Firefighter and Paramedic Cheryl Parente who serves as the Benevolent’s treasurer.
The firefighters will use the proceeds from the campaign to help local cancer patients. They will also be working with local charities that assist cancer patients. Last year the t-shirt campaign raised more than $5,000.
Shirt prices are $10 for short sleeves and $20 for long sleeves.
Shirts may be purchased from the Palm Bay Firefighters by calling 321-723-3036 or by stopping into Palm Bay Fire Station 1 located at 1201 Port Malabar Blvd. while supplies last.
