Lombard Fire Department Firefighters will be wearing pink shirts throughout the month of October, in an effort to raise awareness during breast cancer awareness month.

Residents and Village staff have also purchased the same shirts in order to raise funds for local charities that raise money to buy wigs for women in treatment.

“Everyone was so responsive when we started this last October, and this year even more people wanted to participate,” said Lombard Firefighter/Paramedic Bob Hopper, an organizer of the cause. “We’ve had a great response so far from the community and we’re really happy with how they turned out.”

Lombard Fire Chief Paul DiRienzo approved the option for on duty fire department personnel to wear these shirts throughout the month of October, and emphasized that wearing the pink shirts is not a requirement. “I’m proud of our firefighters. They care about the community and they’re genuinely excited to be able to raise awareness of the cause,” DiRienzo said. “This is a simple way for us to do something extra for anyone that has been affected by breast cancer.” Chief DiRienzo also confirmed that no Village funds were used to purchase the T-shirts.

For more information or to arrange an interview with Fire Department staff, contact Communications Coordinator Avis Meade at (630) 620-5718 or email meadea@villageoflombard.org.
