150 Person Pink Hard Hat Ribbon Creates Support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month and EMCOR’s Signature "Protect Yourself. Get Screened Today." Campaign
---EMCOR/Tucker Mechanical & Yale Cancer Center Employees Unite---
NEW HAVEN, CONNECTICUT, October 15, 2014 – EMCOR Tucker Mechanical announced today that 150 employees, along with those of Yale Cancer Center and Smilow Cancer Hospital, donned EMCOR Pink Hard Hats and assembled to form a 150 person giant human pink ribbon in a "Call to Action" in support of breast cancer awareness as part of EMCOR's "Protect Yourself. Get Screened Today." campaign. The event was held at Amistad Park in New Haven, Connecticut. This was the fifth year that Tucker Mechanical has joined with Yale for this event.
A leading contractor in New England, Tucker Mechanical is a subsidiary of EMCOR Group, Inc. (NYSE: EME), a Fortune 500® leader in mechanical and electrical construction, industrial and energy infrastructure, and building services for a diverse range of businesses. 2014 is EMCOR’s 6th consecutive year raising awareness for breast cancer screening through its signature Pink Hard Hat Ribbon Events; through October EMCOR is creating six giant human Pink Hard Hat Events coast-to-coast in conjunction with its clients.
As part of the event, a Pink Hard Hat plaque was presented to Dr. Anees Chagpar, MD, Director of the Breast Center at Smilow Cancer Hospital by Tucker Mechanical President & CEO Bob Turner.
Dr. Chagpar commented, “Yale Cancer Center is pleased to team up with EMCOR and the ‘Protect Yourself.’ campaign in this very memorable and visual way to increase awareness of breast cancer screening. Breast cancer affects over 200,000 women in the U.S. annually. The importance of screening and early detection cannot be overstated---Tucker Mechanical’s efforts to increase awareness through the Pink Hard Hat program are an innovative way to remind women to make an appointment for their annual mammogram.”
“We’re delighted to be participating in EMCOR’s 6th consecutive year of conducting this national initiative,” stated Bob Turner. “The enthusiasm for this program continues to grow, and we’ve received feedback regarding the positive impact our awareness efforts have had on decisions to go for a screening–-we know EMCOR is making a difference. Our field employees wear a hard hat every day for personal protection, and we’re proud they’re committed to wearing a Pink Hard Hat during October to help raise awareness of the importance of screening."
Additionally, thousands of EMCOR employees across the U.S. are wearing EMCOR Pink Hard Hats at scores of construction sites, ranging from hospitals, roadways, malls, and high tech companies, to universities, military bases, and hotels.
A “multiplier effect” will continue when thousands of passersby to EMCOR’s jobsites see the Pink Hard Hats and EMCOR employees take the Pink Hard Hats home each night and they’re seen by spouses, daughters, sisters, neighbors. Also, EMCOR’s 7,000+ service vehicles will carry Pink Hard Hat posters, reaching millions of people throughout October.
