The entire project workforce and many others donned pink hard hats and T-shirts to form a giant human pink ribbon at Bayhealth’s new Sussex Campus construction site in Milford.

The giant ribbon was made up of at least 440 people.

The Oct. 3 event was a call to action for Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the EMCOR-sponsored ninth annual “Protect Yourself. Get Screened Today” campaign.

The EMCOR Group is providing electrical and mechanical construction work on the hospital site.

Throughout October thousands of employees at the 60-plus EMCOR subsidiaries across the United States are wearing the pink hard hats at hundreds of work sites such as hospitals, infrastructure projects, shopping malls, manufacturing facilities, and oil refineries.

Millions more will be reached nationally in October as EMCOR’s U.S. fleet of more than 6,000 service vehicles display pink hard hat posters with the “Protect Yourself. Get Screened Today” campaign message.
