Salisbury Public Safety Nails “hair-raising” challenge in Support of Rowan County United Way

Fire and Police 0 145
In a change from their personal grooming policies, Salisbury fire and police departments will allow male personnel to grow facial hair to promote awareness and support of the United Way of Rowan County during the “Public Safety No-Shave” campaign. Female personnel are permitted to wear more elaborate fingernail designs. The initiative is similar to other organizations that permit “dress down days.”
