TYLER, TX (KLTV) -

Tyler fire officials and representatives from Susan G. Komen gathered to celebrate the return of the Greenberg Turkey fire truck Friday morning.

Sam and Connie Greenberg donated the 1969 fire truck to the Pink Heals Tour in 2010. The organization decided they did not need the truck, so they are returning it to Tyler.

The truck will be used to promote women's cancer prevention after being painted pink. The Tyler Professional Fire Fighters Association will be raising money to paint the truck pink.

An account is set up at Citizen State Bank under Tyler firefighter pink truck fund for anyone who would like to donate.

Once the truck is painted, fire officials plan on having local cancer survivors sign the pink fire truck.
