Local firefighters raising funds for pink fire engine

The Logan-Cache firefighters are partnering with other organizations to help bring a retired old fire truck from Box Elder County back to life. Sean Lowe, paramedic firefighter of Local 2148/Logan City Fire Department, says it will be the first truck in Utah to be painted “pink” in support of women’s cancer awareness. Lowe says the truck will be used, much like pink fire trucks from Arizona that tour the nation. “We want to provide support to those who are diagnosed with cancer here locally,” Lowe said on KVNU’s For the People program Wednesday. “So what we can do is we are going to set up a way for someone to request this pink truck to someone’s home and we will bring a care package with t-shirts and bracelets and all the cancer information that is available locally to them and they can come out and sign the firetruck.” Lowe said an auction and family 5K run will be held on April 14 at the Riverwoods Conference Center to help raise funds to meet this goal. He said all of the money raised in the 5K run and silent auction will be used to restore and maintain he truck and to help local charities.
