In 6 cities coast-to-coast, employees and clients will wear EMCOR Pink Hard Hats and form massive human Pink Hard Hat ribbons, EMCOR’s “signature” event, creating “Calls to Action” and awareness for the importance of breast cancer screening:

  • University of California-San Diego Jacobs Medical Center – La Jolla, CA, Sept 30
  • Tishman Speyer at 201 Folsom – San Francisco, CA, Oct 2
  • Gilda’s Club New York at Alexandria Center for Life Science-NYC – New York, NY, Oct 7
  • Elkhart General Hospital – Elkhart, IN, Oct 9
  • Yale Cancer Center and Smilow Cancer Hospital – New Haven, CT, Oct 15
  • EMCOR Customer Solutions Center – Phoenix, AZ, Oct 22

EMCOR’s 2014 Pink Hard Hat Program continues to set new records:

  • 750 people in the New York City event will be the largest Human Pink Ribbon formed in NYC.
  • 350 people in the San Francisco event will be the first human ribbon formed atop a high rise.
  • 6,000+ EMCOR employees wearing Pink Hard Hats nationally–at scores of job sites ranging from hospitals and manufacturing plants to military bases-exceeds last year’s record number.

“This is the sixth consecutive year thousands of EMCOR employees have worn EMCOR Pink Hard Hats, challenging the ‘macho’ image of the construction industry, supporting family, friends, colleagues, and clients who have been and could be affected by breast cancer,” stated Tony Guzzi, President & CEO, EMCOR Group, Inc. “The enthusiasm for this program continues to grow, and we’ve been given specific feedback regarding the positive impact this has on peoples’ decision to go for a screening – we know it is making a difference. At EMCOR, the majority of our field employees wear a hard hat on a daily basis for personal protection, and we are proud of their commitment to wear a Pink Hard Hat during Breast Cancer Awareness Month to help raise awareness of this disease and the importance of screening.”

The “multiplier effect” continues, as thousands of passersby to EMCOR’s jobsites see the Pink Hard Hats and when EMCOR employees take the Pink Hard Hats home each night and they are seen by spouses, daughters, sisters, neighbors. Also, EMCOR’s 7,000+ service vehicles will carry Pink Hard Hat posters with the “Protect Yourself. Get Screened Today” Message, reaching millions of people as they travel throughout October.
