The Pink Pumper stands in solidarity with breast cancer survivors everywhere while showing off its "true pink" at the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in downtown
West Palm Beach. As pink is the color of the day for this event attended
by thousands each year, the Pink Pumper proves
to lift spirits by making people smile!
The Pink Pumper was on display at the Jupiter Fire Fest at Jupiter High School to show residents our commitment to finding a cure for cancer. The Fire Fest is a free community event put on by Local 2928, the Firefighter's Benevolent and PBCFR to allow residents to get up close and personal with their local Firefighter/Paramedics in order to learn about the jobs that they do and the services they provide. We are also teaching very important fire safety and EMS lessons and reminding residents just how fast fire moves, how dangerous it is and how important it is to make sure you have working smoke detectors.
The Pink Pumper was officially unveiled at a fundraising event for one of our fallen brothers, Firefighter/Paramedic Eric Patrie of Delray Beach Fire Rescue. He passed away from brain cancer in November 2012. He is survived by his wife and two young children. The event brought firefighters from several different departments together for one cause: standing by and supporting the family members of those who are battling cancer.
