TEMPE, AZ, October 25, 2011 - EMCOR Group, Inc.a> (NYSE: EME), a Fortune 500® leader in mechanical and electrical construction, energy infrastructure and facilities services for a diverse range of businesses, is proud to announce that workers from its University Mechanical & Engineering Contractors, Inc. (UMEC) subsidiary, as well as those of the University of Arizona College of Medicine-Phoenix and University of Arizona Cancer Center, and other organizations, donned EMCOR Pink Hard Hats and formed a human pink ribbon today at the University of Arizona in Phoenix. As part of EMCOR's "Protect Yourself. Get Screened Today." campaign, more than 170 employees from the organizations formed themselves into the shape of a giant human pink ribbon, the international symbol of breast cancer awareness.
Official EMCOR Pink Hard Hats were presented to executives of the University of Arizona College of Medicine-Phoenix and University of Arizona Cancer Center as part of a ceremony by Brad Thornton, President & CEO, UMEC. Also as part of the ceremony, employees from UMEC, and other workers on the project, removed their regular hard hats and replaced them with EMCOR Pink Hard Hats in a "Call to Action" for millions of women and men to "Protect Yourself. Get Screened Today."
"We’re excited to participate in EMCOR’s third consecutive year of conducting this national initiative,” commented Brad Thornton. “Many of our employees wear hard hats daily for personal protection, and we’re proud of their commitment to wear an EMCOR Pink Hard Hat throughout the month of October in order to raise awareness for breast cancer and how to protect yourself by getting screened. As a Company that has built its reputation on being engaged in the concerns of our industry and community, it's gratifying to demonstrate support for breast cancer screening and awareness, standing with our dedicated employees, client, and partners.”
“The University of Arizona was honored to participate with EMCOR to build breast cancer awareness through its ‘Protect Yourself.’ Campaign. Together our efforts to increase awareness of breast cancer screening through the Pink Hard Hat initiative were an innovative way to remind women to make an appointment for their annual mammogram,” commented Judy Bernas, Associated Vice President for External Relations, at the University of Arizona.
Bringing a personal perspective to the event, Brad Thornton, UMEC President & CEO, spoke from his vantage point as a breast cancer spokesperson. For years, Brad has been a strong supporter of breast cancer awareness; he is passionate about EMCOR’s Pink Hard Hat Program.
