Eastside Fire & Rescue firefighters and staff will be decked out in pink T-shirts Oct. 13-18 to help raise awareness of breast cancer.
Most people are aware of breast cancer, but many forget to take steps to detect the disease in the earliest stage, when it is most often curable, according to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
Through the awareness effort, EFR and many other entities hope people will learn about early detection, diagnosis, treatment, stages, myths, etc.

Issaquah and Sammamish had the meeting equivalent of a group hug July 14.
After a year in which the two cities’ leadership have found themselves on different sides of several issues, both city councils and other city administrative staff met at Issaquah City Hall to discuss points of mutual interest. It was their first joint meeting since 2011.
“We all have one thing in common,” Issaquah Mayor Fred Butler said. “We certainly love our cities and we love representing them. We not only care about our communities, we care about the region as well.”
