TKC MUST SEE!!! KANSAS CITY FIRE FIGHTERS WEAR PINK AS WE CELEBRATE THE KCFD 'FIGHT LIKE A GIRL' CAMPAIGN FOR BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH!!!
You're gonna laugh but I remember when the guys from the KCFD weren't so nice . . . Thanks to some of the VERY BEST PEOPLE IN KANSAS CITY this blog and so many other people endured a rather divisive civic epoch and NOW it seems that there's a great deal of change underway in The Kansas City Fire Department.
To wit . . .
TAKE A LOOK AT THE KANSAS CITY CITY FIRE DEPARTMENT TOP BRASS WEARING PINK AND WORKING TO BENEFIT BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH!!!
Recently, Local 42 Prez Michael Cambiano touted the efforts of the KCFD to pitch in during breast cancer awareness month . . .
Mr. Cambiano exclaimed: "When 1200 Firefighters show up during the month of October wearing pink t-shirts, people are going to become aware of the issue . . ."
Seriously, this is a major re-branding for the Kansas City Fire Department that had previously faced lawsuits from disgruntled female employees regarding workplace accommodations and a hostile work environment . . . NOW, KCFD is really going out of their way to change their image with an effort that represents a significant commitment to women's issues.
Accordingly . . . A Kansas City insider remarked . . .
"It was great to see Local 42 Pres giving some well deserved recognition to the women of KCFD! I don't believe this has ever been done before."
Take a look at a clip showing plans for the Kansas City Fire Department to start wearing pink to support Breast Cancer Awareness month with some rather KICK-ASS t-shirts.
Again, it's not only a worthwhile cause but also a real sign that the culture at the KCFD is changing for the better.
