In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month members of the Oswego Fire Department Firefighters IAFF Local #126 designed and sold commemorative pink Oswego Fire Department T-shirts throughout the month of October. The sale raised $600 in support of Oswego County Opportunities’ (OCO) Cancer Services Program of the North Country.

“I’m grateful that the Oswego City Fire Department and IAFF Local #126 recognize the work of our program and our efforts to raise awareness of the importance of regular breast cancer screenings” said Program Coordinator Carolyn Handville.
