- Australia’s ‘hottest’ firefighters have put their bodies on the line for charity, posing up for the 2022 calendar

- The proceeds of the calendar, which is sold in over 100 countries, go toward nine different charities
Australia’s hottest firefighters have stripped off and struck a pose for the nation’s most popular calendar .
The firefighters ‘risked it all’ in the photoshoot which saw them kicked at by horses, scratched by kittens and jabbed by a particularly prickly echidna.
One of the calendar-men, Ben Church a new recruit from Western Australia, admitted he was also teased for his part in the photoshoot after it was revealed his grandma and mum signed him up.
‘They embarrassed the heck out of me by emailing the calendar co-ordinators advising them I was the most handsome firefighter in Western Australia,’ he said.
There are six different editions of the calendar available this year, with ‘fan favourites’ including ‘the classic’ fireman calendar as well as dog, cat, horse and mixed animal editions.
There is also a summer special available for the first time ever which shows the firefighters dressed in boardshorts and enjoying soft serve ice creams in the street.
Proceeds of the calendar sales go directly to Australian charities which are made up of animal and kids charities.
The firefighters have shared behind the scenes footage showing exactly how the calendar is made.
