Berea FD uses pink fire truck to raise cancer awareness

BEREA, S.C. (WSPA) – October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and one fire department is going the extra mile to show their support for people who are fighting the disease.

The Berea Fire Department has created a program called “On Fire for a Cure” to help give back to the community that they say has supported them for so long.

The program focuses on increasing awareness on many types of cancer, and how each affects families in the community.

The fire department says the C-word is pretty personal to most of the firefighters, and they want to provide support for those who are fighting the fight.

To show their support and raise awareness of breast cancer, the fire department will be fighting fires with a pink fire truck during the month of October.
