NORWALK, CONNECTICUT — Emcor Group, Inc., a Fortune 500 leader in mechanical and electrical construction, industrial and energy infrastructure, and building services for a diverse range of businesses, announces that for the 7th consecutive year, thousands of its employees at 55+ Emcor subsidiaries throughout the U.S will commemorate Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October by donning Emcor Pink Hard Hats in support of the Company's "Protect Yourself. Get Screened Today." campaign.
Employees and clients will wear Emcor Pink Hard Hats and stand together to form massive Human Pink Hard Hat ribbons -- Emcor’s “signature” event -- creating powerful "Calls to Action" and raising awareness for the importance of breast cancer screening, at various locations across the U.S. Additionally, thousands of employees at subsidiaries across the U.S. will wear Emcor Pink Hard Hats at scores of construction sites, ranging from hospitals, roadways, malls, and high tech companies, to universities, military bases, and hotels.
The “multiplier effect” continues, as thousands of additional people are reached with the “Protect Yourself. Get Screened Today.” message as Emcor employees take the Pink Hard Hats home each night and are seen by spouses, daughters, sisters, and neighbors.
Additionally, Emcor’s fleet of 7,000+ service vehicles will display Pink Hard Hat posters with the “Protect Yourself. Get Screened Today.” message, reaching millions more people throughout streets coast-to-coast in October.
“This is the seventh consecutive year thousands of Emcor employees across the U.S. will wear Emcor Pink Hard Hats, challenging the ‘macho’ image of the construction industry, supporting family, friends, colleagues, and clients who have been and could be affected by breast cancer,” stated Tony Guzzi, President & CEO, Emcor Group, Inc. “While it’s impossible to calculate the precise impact, we know this program is making a difference because people have come forward and told us how it has positively impacted their lives. At Emcor, the majority of our field employees wear a hard hat on a daily basis for personal protection, and we’re proud of their commitment to wear a Pink Hard Hat during Breast Cancer Awareness Month to help raise awareness of this disease and the importance of screening."
