FAIRFIELD TWP, OH (FOX19) -

Pink fire trucks made a stop in Fairfield Township over the weekend.

The trucks are owned by Guardians of the Ribbon, who bring the National Tour of Pink Fire Trucks to communities across the nation to support all women in their fight against cancer.

The Guardians bring the tour to help raise money and awareness for the non-profit entities that help women in their city and state. In addition, the non-profit group supports and helps other non-profit programs raise money by bringing the pink fire trucks to various fund raisers to assist in the efforts at no charge to the organization.

The goal of Guardians of the Ribbon is to spread the "Cares Enough to Wear Pink" campaign until all are in pink shirts. Even the firefighters dress in pink gear.

On September 4, the tour made a stop at the Fairfield Fire Department Station #2 on Morris Road. Three pink fire trucks from the national tour along with the Ohio Chapter engine were on hand to allow all who were present to sign one of the engines as a cancer survivor or in memory of someone who succumbed to cancer.

The tour is making stops at 50 cities across the U.S.

The event was hosted by the Fairfield Township Fire Department and the Guardians of the Ribbon Southeastern Ohio Chapter. The Southeastern Ohio Chapter's Engine (X-Hamilton Engine 4) was not in attendance due to the fact it is in Columbus being painted pink.
