The Prince George’s County Fire/Emergency Medical Services Department cares enough to go pink year round.  An engine was wrapped in PINK and has been seen by thousands as the PGFD Pink Pumper visits various events in support of Breast Cancer Awareness over the past 2 years.  During the month of October, Prince George's County Firefighter/Medics swap their standard work shirts for pink ones to help raise awareness and to raise funds for various charities working to find a cure.

The Department is looking forward to expanding our awareness program by adding a new PGFD Pink Paramedic unit.  The transport unit is painted pink and is adorned with graphics supporting awareness and finding a cure.  The Fire/EMS Departments very own Jeff Callaway designed the graphics.

The PINK medium-duty unit will be on display at the Fire Department Instructors Conference (FDIC) in Indianapolis, Indiana before being delivered to Prince George’s County.  We anticipate the in-service date of this $240,000 unit to be in early May.  The pink unit is scheduled to go in-service as a paramedic unit at the College Park Fire/EMS Station 812.
