Proud (but rain-soaked) day for Tucker Mechanical, An EMCOR Company, and Yale Cancer Center as they joined forces to form a 160+ person Pink Hard Hat Ribbon on September 28 – a visual kick-off for Breast Cancer Awareness Month and visible call to action for EMCOR's "Protect Yourself. Get Screened Today." Campaign. An official EMCOR Pink Hard Hat was presented to Anees Chagpar, MD, Director of the Breast Center at Smilow Cancer Hospital, by Tucker Mechanical President & CEO, Robert Turner as part of a special ceremony. As part of this ceremony, all EMCOR Tucker Mechanical employees, and general contractors and sub-contractors with which Tucker Mechanical works, removed their regular hard hats and replaced them with EMCOR Pink Hard Hats in a "Call to Action" for millions of women and men to "Protect Yourself. Get Screened Today." The event was held at Amistad Park in New Haven, Connecticut.
NEW HAVEN, CONNECTICUT, September 28, 2012 - Even rain couldn't dampen the spirits of those who hosted, and those who attended. EMCOR Group, Inc. (NYSE: EME), a Fortune 500® leader in mechanical and electrical construction, energy infrastructure, and facilities services for a diverse range of businesses, proudly announced that today 160+ employees of its Tucker Mechanical subsidiary and those of its client Yale Cancer Center donned EMCOR Pink Hard Hats and assembled into the shape of a giant pink ribbon, the international symbol of breast cancer awareness, in a "Call to Action" in support of Breast Cancer screening and awareness as part of EMCOR's "Protect Yourself. Get Screened Today." Campaign. The event was held – during a cool autumn shower – at Amistad Park in New Haven, Connecticut.
"Standing in the rain is not a hardship. Those brave souls who battle this relentless disease, and the families who support them, all suffer the hardship. We're proud to be here today," said EMCOR Tucker Mechanical President & CEO, Robert Turner, as an official EMCOR Pink Hard Hat was presented to Anees Chagpar, MD, Director of the Breast Center at Smilow Cancer Hospital, in a special ceremony. Also as part of the ceremony, all EMCOR Tucker Mechanical employees, and general contractors and sub-contractors with which Tucker Mechanical works, removed their regular hard hats and replaced them with EMCOR Pink Hard Hats in a "Call to Action" for millions of women and men to "Protect Yourself. Get Screened Today."
"We're delighted to be participating in EMCOR's fourth consecutive year of conducting this national initiative," stated Turner. "Our employees wear hard hats on a daily basis for personal protection, and we're proud of their commitment to wear an EMCOR Pink Hard Hat throughout October to raise awareness for breast cancer and how to protect yourself by getting screened. As a Company that has built its reputation on being engaged in the concerns of our industry and community, it's gratifying to demonstrate support for breast cancer screening and awareness, standing with our dedicated employees, client, and partners. This time with umbrellas."
Dr. Anees Chagpar commented, "Yale Cancer Center is honored to partner with Tucker Mechanical for the third consecutive year to build breast cancer awareness through its ‘Protect Yourself.' Campaign. Breast cancer affects over 200,000 women in the U.S. each year, and the importance of screening and early detection of breast cancer cannot be underestimated. Tucker Mechanical's effort to increase awareness of breast cancer screening through the Pink Hard Hat initiative is an innovative way to remind women to make an appointment for their annual mammogram. Rain or shine."
Tucker has performed dozens of construction projects over the last 16+ years at Yale-New Haven Medical Center, Yale School of Medicine, and Yale University, including laboratory renovations, energy efficient upgrades, and infrastructure upgrades, cogeneration projects, and design build projects.
