They’re used to having to keep their cool in some inflammatory situations.
But, once again, firefighters from West Yorkshire have turned up the heat in a series of sizzling shots for a charity calendar.
The popular Red Hot Dates calendar – now in its eighth year – features hunks from across the county, including stations in Stanningley, Pudsey, Wetherby and Kirkstall Road.
Women from partner organisations and charities have also got in on the act for a 1940s-themed Red Hot Sirens calendar.
The men’s calendar will support the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice and The Fire Fighters Charity. Cash from the women’s calendar will go towards Parkinson’s UK and Heartbeat of Sport as well as the Forget Me Not hospice and The Fire Fighters Charity.
Calderdale station commander Dom Furby said: “We are incredibly proud of the calendars’ achievements.
“The men’s calendar has been hugely popular in the past, raising £17,000 alone last year, but we hope to top that this year. The women’s calendar has returned after a year off and we have tried something new by giving it a 1940s theme and we are really pleased with the result.”
Shot at some of Yorkshire’s familiar locations, Red Hot Sirens is full of quiffs, puffer dresses and Second World War attire.
Mayor of Calderdale Coun Lisa Lambert, who features alongside other models at Halifax Town Hall, said: “It’s great that following the success of the men’s calendar, women have got their own version, and I love the vintage feel of the shots.”
