Mother’s Heart Attack inspires Captain to turn Lawrence Township Fire Department Red

A Lawrence Township firefighter, whose mother suffered a heart attack in January, has spearheaded the effort to turn the department red during American Heart Month.  Capt. James King and other firefighters who have been personally affected by heart disease will share their reasons for going red at 3:30 p.m., Wednesday, Feb. 17, at Fire Station No. 9, 6260 E. 86th Street (next to Costco and across from Target at Castleton Square).

We invite you to join us for this special “Firefighters Go Red” program/photo to show your support.  Following the short progam, we'll take a group photo of the firefighters wearing their Go Red shirts on a fire truck. Feel free to bring cyour kids, friends, family and co-workers to this program. The firefighters will be giving tours of the fire station following the event!

The Lawrence Township Fire Department is "going red" in February by placing Go Red decals on all their apparatus, wearing special Firefighters Go Red t-shirts, flying a Go Red flag in front of their department headquarters, and serving as Fashion Show escorts at the Go Red For Women Luncheon on Feb. 26.
