If you should be unfortunate enough to be in need of services from the North Charleston Fire Department, don't be alarmed if a pink firetruck pulls up.

North Charleston unveiled a, you guessed it, pink fire truck in front of city hall on Friday, October 21.

You can see a video of the unveiling below.

Inspired by the Pink Heals National Fire Truck Tour that came through town, the city will use the pink fire truck to raise awareness for women and local non-profits in their fight against cancer.

In a post the city wrote that, "At the unveiling, the fire truck was dedicated to Brenda Cawley who has shown brave resolve and been an inspiration to others in their fight against cancer. In addition, all city employees who have battled cancer will be specifically acknowledged on the fire truck."

An all-female crew from Fire Station 3 drove the fire truck to city hall with North Charleston Mayor Keith Summey as their passenger.
