Prince George's County rolls out pink ambulance

The breast-cancer awareness unit went into service Sunday; it joins the pink pumper engine

WJLA  

PRINCE GEORGE'S COUNTY, Md. — Prince George's County loves the color pink. The county's Fire and Emergency Medical Services Department (EMS) has a new paramedic transport unit that is completely pink, and it's all in the name of breast cancer awareness.

Now, they need help naming it, and are hoping a clever member of the community can give the unit its new name.

The new pink unit was officially baptized into service during a short ceremony on Sunday. It will operate out of the College Park Fire/EMS Station 812 near the University of Maryland.
