Some of the names are written in small, cropped print, others in swooping cursive. A few are flanked by hearts, and some accompanied by short notes scrawled in permanent marker.
Each name written on the Berea Fire Department's pink truck is different, and each one has its story.
"Stories of hope and courage," they're called by Assistant Fire Chief Alan Myers, whose own name appears a few feet above the truck's pump discharges. The signatures are a part of the department's On Fire for a Cure Initiative, and each represents another person's fight against cancer. While the names spanning the sides of the truck are written by hand, the dozens on its cab are printed in bold, uniform letters, a different colored ribbon by each one.
That space is for current and retired members of the Berea Fire Department and their direct family.
