Once again, I offer you the BEST firefighter calendars from around the World. This year, all of the calendars have once again been compiled into one single list. Don’t worry, there are plenty of men and women firefighters featured in these calendars! These calendars support great charities across the globe!
As always, I commend each of the firefighters depicted in these calendars for taking the time to get fit or remain fit for the calendar. I know it is hard work. Thank you for all of the calendars who sent in a calendar for review…it makes this process easier.
If your department has a calendar, it helps if you send one to us for judging. Contact The Fire Critic at FireCritic@FireCritic.com. Calendars are ranked using an algorithm focusing on criteria related to the calendars, their websites/SM, their purpose/charity, and whether or not one was submitted for judging.

1. Hotstuff Calendar (Calgary Firefighters)
The HotStuff Calendar began in the late 1980’s. It was created as a fundraiser to raise awareness for the Calgary Firefighters cherished charity, the Calgary Burn Treatment Centre. Larry, a firefighter and photographer organized and produced the early years of the calendar.
The firefighters who modeled for the calendar were originally selected as part of the Ladies Night Out event. They would do runway work and entice the female audience for their vote. Now the selections are made from volunteers. When there are more than 13 good-looking guys, we double up a few of the months as a bonus for the women buying the calendar.
The calendar has changed its look and size over the years and even had one edition that was black and white. The graphic designers have worked hard to give the calendar a strong look that goes beyond the normal calendar page.
In the last few years the Firefighters Museum Society Calgary have been supplying the old fire trucks and props used in the backgrounds. These guys are great, giving interesting histories on the gear used. Many of their stories have made it into the little side notes sprinkled throughout the older calendars.
The Hotstuff calendar has won many awards for its design and photography. It is considered one of the best firefighter calendars available and is hotly anticipated each year.
