UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (AP) - Prince George’s County officials are asking for the public’s help in naming a new ambulance that’s painted pink.

Officials say the new ambulance officially went into service Sunday and that its pink color is to promote breast cancer awareness.

Officials say they’re taking suggestions through Twitter, Facebook and email. Ideas will be accepted through the end of July. The person who submits the winning nickname will get a pink uniform shirt worn by Prince George’s County medics during the month of October, which is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The pink ambulance will be based at a station near the University of Maryland in College Park.

The ambulance isn’t the only pink vehicle in the county. Officials also have a pink fire truck called the Pink Pumper, or “Pinky.”
