MORE EXCITED TO SEE DENA. WE KNOW YOU HAVE SEEN THEM AROUND TOWN BEFORE. THE FIRE TRUCKS THAT ARE PINK FOR BREAST CANCER AWARENESS. THEY ARE STARTING TO WRAP THE TRUCK. Reporter: WRAP AS IN WRAP IT UP ANCHORS BACK IN THE STUDIO. I LOVE YOU ALL AND I WAS HAPPY TO HEAR THAT WHOLE CONVERSATION. DON’T REALLY KNOW WHAT IT WAS ALL ABOUT. WE’RE TALKING ABOUT WRAPPING VEHICLES. WE’RE USED TO SEEING THE BIG RED FIRE ENGINES, AND ALSO THROUGHOUT THE COUNTY. AND WE’RE TALKING ABOUT BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH. CHECK OUT WHAT METRO FIRE IS HAVING DONE NOW. WE’RE AT VEHICLE WRAPS. AND THEY ARE PUTTING THE FINISHING TOUCHES ON THE ACTUAL VEHICLE GETTING WRAPPED FOR BREAST CANCER AWARENESS AND ALL CANCERS, THAT’S A REALLY IMPORTANT CAUSE THAT THEY WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY ARE ALSO CONTRIBUTING TO THIS MONTH AND IN NOVEMBER. HELLO. IT’S NOT JUST THE PINK SIDE. THERE’S A BLUE SIDE. TELL ME WHY YOU’RE DOING THIS. CANCER AFFECTS ALL PEOPLE. AND WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE PROMOTE AWARENESS. AND SUICIDE PREVENTION, PTSD IN FIREFIGHTERS. AS YOU’RE RIDING AROUND, YOU’LL SEE A LOT OF VEHICLES WRAPPED WITH THIS. BUT AS YOU SEE ON THE OTHER SIDE, THIS IS VERY MUCH IN THE WORKS. THIS IS THE PROCESS OF HOW IT’S MADE. THEY ARE WORKING TO PUT THESE STICKERS THAT HAVE BEEN PREDESIGNED. THERE’S A WHOLE COMPUTER SYSTEM THEY USE. THEY GO THROUGH IT INCH BY INCH AND FLATTEN THE STICKER DOWN. AND THEY HAVE TO GO THROUGH AN INTRICATE PROCESS. BASICALLY WHAT HE’S DOING IS HEATING UP THE VINYL. AND THAT ALLOWS IT TO BE MORE MALLEABLE AND BE TUCKED INTO THE SMALLER CRACKS AND CREVICES AND TO GIVE THE APPEARANCE OF PAINT. Reporter: IT PROTECTS THE PAINT WHILE IT’S ON. IT’S NOT GOING TO RIP THE PAINT OFF WHEN IT’S DONE. YOU HAVE TO MAKE SURE THAT THE FIRE ENGINE IS OPERATIONAL. YOU HAVE MANY SLATS THAT NEED TO BE TRIMMED OUT TO MAKE SURE THAT NOT ONLY IS THE DOOR OPERATIONAL. BUT IT GIVES THE ESTHETIC APPEARANCE OF BEING PAINTED OR WRAPPED. IT’S SO COOL. I LOVE THIS. I WAS TALKING TO CHRIS AND HE SAID THE TRUCK IS GOING TO BE DONE YOU SHOULD COME SEE IT. I SAID NO I WANT TO SEE THE WHOLE PROCESS. WE’LL TAKE YOU THROUGH THE ENTIRE BUILDING AND SHOW YOU HOW IT WORKS. THEY GO FROM COMPUTERS, DESIGNERS, BIG, BIG BIG STICKERS, AND THEY CUT IT DOWN IN A REAL COOL ROOM THAT IS AN X ACT TOE KNIFE DREAM. AND REMEMBER, ALL CANCERS BETWEEN NOW AND NOVEMBER. AND ALL OF US HAVE BEEN IMPACTED BY THIS. ABSOLUTELY. YOU’LL SEE THE FIRE ENGINE
