CARROLL COUNTY FIREFIGHTERS GOING PINK
Firefighters from Carroll County Fire Rescue are wearing pink for the month of October to help raise awareness for breast cancer. Firefighters throughout the county have purchased pink T-shirts with the Carroll County Fire Rescue logo along with the breast cancer awareness ribbon. The proceeds of the T-shirts will be donated to the Mammogram Assistance Fund at the Tanner Medical Foundation to assist Carroll County residents with the cost of mammograms. Carroll County Fire Chief Scott Blue stated that firefighters had approached him with the idea of wearing the shirts, and agreed that this was a cause worth supporting. Chief Blue made the comment “It is a terrible disease and almost everyone knows someone who has been touched by it. I am proud that our firefighters are willing to commit their time and efforts toward this cause.”
In addition to firefighters wearing the shirts, the department is offering shirts for sale to the public. Shirts can be ordered for $10 by contacting Carroll County Fire Rescue Headquarters at 501 Old Newnan Rd. Carrollton.
The Carroll County Sheriff’s Office Emergency Management Agency will conduct the monthly scheduled test of Carroll County’s Emergency Warning Siren System this week.
