Coral Springs firefighters to wear pink

To recognize National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, members of the Coral Springs Fire Department will wear a special uniform during October. The uniform will feature pink medical gloves and a pink shirt with the ribbon located inside the Maltese cross as a symbol of support to our community and to any person affected by this disease.

“Pink represents hope for all forms of cancer. This is a way to bring the community together and raise awareness of not only breast cancer, but all forms of cancer,” Lieutenant Michael Farmer said.

The Coral Springs Fire Department will be hosting a Spaghetti Dinner on Saturday, October 30 from 4 to 8 p.m. at Station 80. This event is open to the public and for a $5 donation, residents will receive a plate of pasta prepared by Coral Springs Firefighters. Donations will benefit the Coral Springs Professional Firefighters Benevolent Association, which contributes to local charities.

Station 80 is located at 2801 Coral Springs Drive, just north of Royal Palm Blvd.
