Over the years people have come forward to say they believe this unique way of raising awareness of the importance of breast cancer screening has had a positive impact on their own lives or that of a loved one,” stated Harry Sassaman, President, Forest Electric New Jersey. “Many of our employees wear hard hats on a daily basis for personal protection, and we’re proud of their commitment to wear an EMCOR/ Forest Electric New Jersey Pink Hard Hat in October to raise awareness for breast cancer, reminding women and men they can help protect themselves by getting screened.” Forest Electric New Jersey employees will be joined by thousands of additional EMCOR employees nationally wearing Pink Hard Hats during October at hundreds of work sites, ranging from hospitals to bridges, malls to military bases, and data centers to refineries. The “multiplier effect” continues as even more people are reached with the “Protect Yourself.
