LAFD Launches ‘Movember’ To Raise Funds To Combat Men’s Health Issues

on November 1, 2017 - 6:18pm

The Los Alamos Fire Department is raising funds and awareness for men's health issues such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer and poor mental health. Throughout  'Movember' LAFD personnel are growing mustaches and collecting donations for The Movember Foundation's goal of stopping men from dying too young. The A Shift at Station 1 took the bold step today of posing for a 'before' photo, saying they are 'The Shift'". Anyone wishing to make a donation can stop by any LAFD station or contribute online at Firefighters participating in this special event, from left, LAFD Movember Coordinator Driver/Engineer Josh Cooper, Firefighter Shane Grano and Driver/Engineer Joe Romero.
