A Christmas gift that will last all year - The 2019 Firefighters Calendar

The 2019 Firefighters Calendar has taken on a new look for 2019, featuring the ever popular firefighters alongside Child Cancer ambassadors.

In the past the calendar has featured firefighters from throughout NZ in ‘pecks and abs’ shots, while the new look calendar embraces both New Zealand firefighters and Child Cancer children ambassadors.

According to Firefighter Tony “Scottie” Scott the new look calendar fits with the new direction of Fire and Emergency.

“We’ve had a great time pulling this calendar together. The kids have added another dimension to it and our people were really excited to evolve what has been a favourite calendar for many people.

“Each month tells a story; not only the photos which are definitely hero shots but the kids and their individual stories really resonate. It’s great to be keeping it real,” says Scottie.

The calendar was first produced in 1990, and has risen over $1million for Child Cancer Foundation. The calendar costs $15 with up to $3 from every calendar going to Child Cancer Foundation.
