 STEMS SUPPORTS BREAST CANCER AWARENESS

 

October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, STEMS staff are doing their part by wearing pink uniform T-shirts.  The shirts were designed by Dispatcher Steph Myers and Assistant Chief Beth Miles.  Employees purchased the shirts on their own with a portion of the purchase price going to Susan G. Komen for a Cure.

Please see a story about STEMS' "Pink Out" that appears on Pennlive.com
