09/28/11 148 W, 1 I - + 8 - 6 "Pink Fire Engines on Parade"

With apologies to Oliver Wallace and Ned Washington, tunesmiths of seventy years ago... Look out! Look out! Pink fire engines on parade. Here they come! Roaring and flashing lights. There here and there. Pink fire engines everywhere. Look out! Look out! They're riding around the block. Arrayed in chrome. Pink fire engines on parade. What'll I do? What'll I do? What an usual view!

I could stand the sight of worms, and look at microscopic germs, but technicolor LaFrance Eagles is really too much for me. I am not the type to faint, when things are odd or things are quaint, but seeing things you know that ain't, can certainly give you an awful fright! What a sight... Charlotte's Engine 90 as seen on the Anchor-Richey EVS web site. See more photos. And the full story forthcoming.

although it is for breast cancer awareness and will never be used by Charlotte again as a front line apparatus, it would be interested to see this apparatus in Service and responding to fire calls. just the sight of a pink fire truck on a fire scene would be a sight to see.

On Tuesday September 27, 2011 the Charlotte Fire Department took delivery of “Pink Lady”. The reserve engine company was repainted pink just in time for the many events that promote breast cancer awareness. Breast cancer has touched the lives of many within the Charlotte community as well as members of the Charlotte Fire Department. This fire truck, unofficially named “The Pink Lady” is a way of showing solidarity and support for all those who have either directly or indirectly been affected by the disease.“The Pink Lady” will make its official debut at the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure on October 1, 2011 and can be seen at many different events over the coming months.
