Breast Cancer Awareness
Our efforts start with awareness.
With 180 firefighters on duty every day, we have a unique opportunity to ensure the public is aware of the ongoing need to support breast cancer research.
San Jose Fire Fighters has partnered with the San José Fire Department in order to allow us to wear Breast Cancer Awareness t-shirts throughout the month of October each year. These shirts are worn in place of our department uniform throughout the month as we respond to over 9,000 emergency calls and perform thousands of inspections and service details.
We amplify this awareness every October effort with the sale of unique San Jose Fire Fighter or San Jose Fire Department breast cancer awareness t-shirts so the public can assist us in getting the message out.
We further help spread this message with ongoing mass media and social media communications throughout the month of October. We also participate in team events, such as walks and runs as a San Jose Fire Fighters team.
