Fire Department Wears Pink, Sells T-shirts to Raise Awareness

The Annapolis Fire Department will be wearing and selling pink shirts to raise money for Susan G. Komen throughout the month of October.

If you spot an Annapolis firefighter wearing pink next month, it's not because they forgot their uniform.

The entire department will be donning pink T-shirts throughout the month of October to raise money and awareness for breast cancer research.

"You’ll see us wearing these all month long, so come buy some T-shirts," Fire Chief David Stokes said.

Stokes and Lt. Carroll Spriggs presented each member of Annapolis City Council their own pink T-shirt at its Monday night meeting. The shirts cost $12 and all the proceeds go to benefit the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

Mayor Josh Cohen commended the department and the union for coming together on this project and for the decision to wear pink while on duty.

Spriggs said they may offer online ordering for the T-shirts, but anyone who wants one now can come down to the fire station at 620 Taylor Ave. and plunk down the cash.
