Cancer Awareness Fire Engine – Supporting All Cancers, All People

Mather, CA – Most all of us have been touched by cancer in one way or another, by our own personal battle, or that of friends and loved ones. Firefighters are not exempt. Not only do we respond to the homes of cancer patients on a regular basis, but we've watched fellow firefighters lose their battles with cancer and we’ve rejoiced with those who have beaten it.

In support of every person affected by cancer, Metro Fire will be operating a Cancer Awareness engine again this year. The engine will run out of five different fire stations during the months of October and November. Community members will be able to place personal messages on the Cancer Awareness Engine, in memory of those who have lost a battle to cancer.

Please join us as the engine is placed into service, supporting All Cancers, All People:

Wednesday, September 30 at 11:00am
Station 21 – 7641 Greenback Lane in Citrus Heights

The cost to wrap the engine was 100% covered by the following sponsors:
