Breast Cancer Awareness Month aims to raise awareness about the disease. Our crews are out in force this week wearing their Pink in support.

All Firefighters from Marin Professional Firefighters Local 1775 will be wearing pink uniform T-shirts this week to show support for breast cancer awareness. This will be the eighth year the Firefighters will display their support and honor all cancer patients and survivors. The American Cancer Society states that; "Excluding cancers of the skin, breast cancer is the most common cancer among US women, accounting for 29% of newly diagnosed cancers." Woman living in the United States now face a 1 in 8, lifetime chance of being diagnosed with breast cancer.

Don’t let the cooler fall mornings we have been having trick you, it is still Fire season and our firefighters continue to train in between calls.


Now that the Irving Fire is out, crews have the task of testing the 21,000 feet of hose used at the fire for damage. After that they clean, dry and roll it all to put back into the cache.
