Firefighters across Gregg County are hoping residents will soon be seeing pink.

The firefighters have formed a branch of Pink Heals, a national charity that provides a platform to help fight cancer, said Steve Denfeld. The Longview firefighter is president of Pink Heals of Gregg County.

“After the national Pink Heals tour visited here in October, I did some checking around and found there was a lot of interest in forming a local branch,” Denfeld said.

The Gregg County branch is open to firefighters from Longview, Sabine, Kilgore, Gladewater, White Oak and Elderville, he said. However, it is a separate 501(c)(3) nonprofit entity that is not officially affiliated with any of the local fire departments or hospitals.
