Pierce Pink Pumper Turns Heads
One of six Pierce Manufacturing apparatus recently delivered to a Fire and EMS Department in Largo Maryland will turn heads if not generate awareness. The Oshkosh Corporation company delivered its pink-colored pumper to the Prince George County, Maryland Fire and EMS Department this past week. The department chose to have the pumper painted pink with a lavender stripe – the first ever new Pierce vehicle so painted – as a way to promote its campaign to fight breast cancer and all other types of cancers. Department officials say the typical reaction they get is amazement, but the underlying goal is to encourage citizens to get screened and tested on a regular basis.
