Pink t-shirts became the official uniform of the Hamilton County Emergency Medical Services during the month of October in recognition of, and to promote breast cancer awareness month.  This year was the fifth Breast Cancer Awareness event for HCEMS.

All proceeds from the event benefited the breast cancer awareness programs of the Sarah Cannon Cancer Center here in Chattanooga.  

The Hamilton County EMS staff supported the cause by purchasing and wearing the shirts during this event. HCEMS committee members volunteered their time to design, print, sell and promote the event through local television appearances and community-wide events in the area.

This year’s donation of $5,823 to the Sarah Cannon Cancer Center will assist those with breast cancer and their families and continue to help find a cure for this devastating disease.  

“I am very pleased with the efforts and involvement of the Hamilton County Emergency Medical Services leadership and staff, as well as the ParkRidge Hospital management and personnel, working together for this critical cause,” said Committee Chairperson Bob Williams with HCEMS. 
 “It is our goal at HCEMS to provide quality emergency medical care for our community and to set the standard of care in our area, providing emergency medical care and service to those in need."
