A big red truck with flashing lights grabs plenty of attention. Throw in a mustache-covered grill and people start talking. That's exactly what Tulsa firefighters want. They're celebrating "No Shave November."
"You've got to throw in a little bit of shampoo, because they tend to get stinky," said District Fire Chief Jon Steiner.
The stubble starts conversation.
"The vast majority of us growing them really have no business growing them," said Steiner.
Eventually, the talk touches a far more serious matter.
"We want to bring awareness to men's prostate health," said Steiner.
Steiner got about 40 firefighters involved.
"This is a way for us to just say 'Hey, heads up, be aware of it, think about it,'" said Steiner.
They formed teams, and paid money to enter the competition.
"It came down to $2 to $3 per man," said Steiner.
Everyone agreed to stash the shaving cream for a month. In the end, the winning team will donate a pot of cash to charity. Two of the causes being considered are Hydrants of Hope and the Tulsa Burn Camp.
