Once again, I give you the best firefighting calendars for 2019. I have enjoyed putting this article since 2010. For the most part, each of these calendars below represent dozens of people who volunteer their time to produce and market a calendar each year to raise money for their charity. This is the reason why I spend time each year putting this article together… To help market these calendars with hopes of raising more money for their charities. Additionally, many of these calendars enjoy seeing how they placed each year for bragging rights.
Read on below to see the rankings for this year and learn more about what these calendars are all about. You will find links to purchase these calendars and their various social media accounts.
Enjoy! – Rhett
Updated with a late arrival. I didn’t know about this calendar when I published the article, so it is unranked.
Ignite the Spirit is an ongoing charity that was created to raise funds for Milwaukee’s Firefighters and their families in times of need.
Our vision to provide emotional, physical, and monetary support to those who have had an unfortunate hardship, will be accomplished thru organizing and hosting several fundraising events throughout the year, while also partnering with other non-profit organizations and local businesses. 100% of donations intended for benevolence, will be used for that purpose. All members of Ignite The Spirit- Milwaukee are unpaid volunteers.
We are a 501(c) (3) organization, built by a group of Milwaukee Firefighters. We are in place to assist those who have built their lives around helping others. In 2017, multiple members of the Milwaukee Fire Department were in need of help that couldn’t formally be given by anyone other than their fellow Firefighters. While many answered the call, this fund is an attempt to be proactive in fundraising so that we may offer immediate assistance when called upon.
Firefighters are known for going great lengths to help others in need. Ignite the Spirit aims to make sure that none of our Brothers and Sisters are left to battle life’s unjust hardships alone.
Proceeds go to Royal Inland Hospital and the BC FireFighters Burn Fund.
I have been photographing the New York Firefighters Calendar since 1995. It’s been 24 years, and every calendar has been just as fun, exciting and interesting as the first. The firemen (and the few firewomen) are the nicest group of people I’ve worked with. It is an honor to work with these people who have the courage and the will to do what they do. They are extraordinary and selfless.
Over the years, I have been able to donate money from calendar sales to several charities. This year, as we have over the past few years, a donation will be made to the New York Burn Centers. – Battman

About the calendar
The firefighters’ calendar is an extraordinary showcase behind which firemen and volunteers unite and gather to do an exceptional job, whose only goal is to help Quebec’s critics.
This fundraising event has allowed the Quebec Firefighters Foundation for Burns to raise more than $ 1,300,000, which was entirely dedicated to its mission to help Quebec’s critically injured people.
Beyond the photos, a reality persists, no one is safe from an accident that could upset a life forever. This fatality, firefighters are fully aware of this is why they agree to participate in the calendar and become our heroes for the cause. (translated from their website)
We are a non-profit organization created for the purpose of promoting fire safety, raising money for local charities, and drawing attention to our First Responders through community participation and awareness.
We accomplish this by sponsoring, hosting, and participating in events and activities involving First Responders and our local communities.
Every year the NZFSA has the pleasure of being able to raise awareness of select charities and also help raise funds for their worthwhile causes along the way. At least one dollar from every calendar sold is currently donated to our principal charity, The Child Cancer Foundation. This relationship was developed through a very close association between firefighters, their families, and an intimate association with the CCF some 26 years ago. We are very proud to boast this relationship has grown over the years, and we are continuing to look at ways of further strengthening this bond, and modernising our fundraising methods too.
With the attraction of high profile television shows, an annual launch of the calendar, and the development of our website and social media networking sites, we are also able to benefit other charities as well. The National Burn Centre, and The Child Cancer Foundation have been benefactors from proceeds raised by the NZ Firefighters Sports Association. In a firefighter special of the television show “Wheel of Fortune”. $50,000 in cash and prizes was donated to CCF.
We will continue to develop our fundraising activities in the future, and any feedback is welcome from you!

The Fire Rescue Dogs Calendar fundraising project benefits Lifeline Puppy Rescue, a 501(c)3 non profit, located in Colorado who rescues more than 1,800 puppies every year. Funds raised from the Calendar will go towards several large expenses including vacinations, medications, spaying/neuturing and lifesaving veterinary care. Any additional funds will go towards updating the shelter in order to keep it in tip top shape.
This project is made possible thanks to the support of all of our wonderful volunteers, sponsors and of course, the hardworking firefighters in and around the Denver Metro area who have graciously volunteered their time. And the Puppies! There wouldn’t be a calendar without the Puppies!
We have a dedicated team that works hard daily to make this fundraiser a reality and we rely on compassionate individuals like you in order to be able to care for all of the sweet puppies that we take into the rescue every week.
Lifeline Puppy Rescue
Just like our brave firefighters, Lifeline Puppy Rescue saves lives every day. They just happen to be four-legged furballs who are in need of their forever family. Lifeline Puppy Rescue is a No-Kill Puppy Rescue that was established in 1993. Lifeline has adopted over 34,000 puppies to families across the Rocky Mountain Region, Kansas, Texas, and New Mexico.

We are excited to celebrate the launch of our 16th annual edition which features brave and hard working Fire Fighters from around the province.
Currently Saskatchewan is one of only two provinces in Canada without a dedicated children’s hospital. The new Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital currently under construction will be a provincial referral centre for moms-to-be, families, and the over 200,000 children living in our province.
We are proud to raise funds for Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation. 100% of proceeds through the 2019 calendar project will go to this cause. Funds raised will ensure that the right equipment, enhancements, research, and technology can be purchased and realized within the walls of the new maternal and children’s hospital.
Fire Fighters know first hand how injured and sick children can change lives. Our goal is to do all we can to improve the lives of children and families in need. The individuals that appear in this calendar are real Fire Fighters, everyday heroes who risk their lives to save the lives and properties of total strangers. These Fire Fighters are donating their time to help Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation.
On behalf of the Fire Fighters involved from across the province, we would like to thank you for purchasing our 2019 calendar and count on your continued support in the future.
100% of the proceeds from the project goes to Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation.
The Hall of Flame Calendar is in it’s 32nd year, and it is truly a labour of love. Each year, professional firefighters volunteering as models, a volunteer citizen production team and a VFCS member management team donate thousands of hours of their time to make the calendar a success. Over the years the amount of funds raised for Charity well-exceeds a million dollars. These funds are used to support the CKNW Orphans Fund, the BCPFFA Burn Fund and the many charitable programs developed by the Vancouver Fire Fighters’ Charitable Society.
Huge thanks to supporting partners, London Drugs, Save on Foods, and other sponsors in helping the Vancouver Firefighter Charities showcase its most popular fundraising initiative.
The 2019 calendar is the 32nd edition of the Hall of Flame Calendar.

The 2019 Hall of Flame Calendar is made up of firefighters from the municipalities of Vancouver, Richmond, Port Coquitlam, and New Westminster, British Columbia. This year, proceeds will benefit the B.C. Professional Fire Fighters Burn Fund, and Vancouver Fire Charities’ Snacks for Kids Program. Further information on these initiatives can be found at www.vancouverfirefighters.ca. Calendars can be purchased for $17.99 at London Drugs, Save-on-Foods and various community engagements.
Our mission is to unite our communities and emergency responders for the greater good. Get healthy together. Serve together. Make the impossible, possible.
Our work continues with Coats For Kids, providing new winter wear for children in need. We are a resource for police, fire, and EMS as they come in contact with children due to losses from fires, poverty or homelessness. We coordinate the free, hands-on FIRE CAMP for teens, now in its sixth year. This is possible through a collaborative effort of multiple fire departments, local agencies, businesses, and firefighters from across the state. This year we are working to assist in the cost to send children who are burn victims to go to Children’s Hospital Colorado Burn Camp.
Serving Emergency Responders
We provide decontamination wipes for emergency responders across the state of Kansas, to help remove contaminants that they are exposed to on emergency calls. This is a preventative effort. The fight against cancer, starts with all of us. We offer free Suicide Prevention classes to firefighters and their family members. This is taught by one of our very own Kansas Firefighter Calendar Alumni, Calvin Brown, who is now based in Colorado. The line of duty deaths are slowly on the decline, but the suicide rate amongst firefighters and other emergency responders is rising at an alarming rate. It’s time to talk about it and help each other.
This year we made a special tribute in the cancer awareness month of October. It is the first time in our journey to take the extra step to bring an awareness about firefighters who are affected by cancer. In this family, no one stands alone. Our second tribute is a welcome back to the dogs that have been saved by Hands of Hope Rescue. They are dedicated to save the lives of dogs in dire situations across Kansas and beyond, and includes those that were impacted, and homeless, after the last hurricane that devastated the Houston area.
Thank you for helping us to serve together! – Kansas Firefighters Alliance Inc
The Calgary Firefighters Burn Treatment Society (CFBTS) is a registered non-profit charity organization supported by 1400+ professional Calgary Firefighters. We are comprised of a 5 member Executive supported by a Board of Directors and numerous other volunteers.
The vision of the CFBTS is to support initiatives that will improve outcomes and quality of life for burn survivors and individuals affected by other severe skin injuries. Our goal is to foster advancements in burn treatment, research, awareness, care and education. To achieve this, we have been providing funds through the Calgary Health Trust for continuing education and for acquisition of state-of-the-art clinical equipment to ensure the very best primary burn care at the Calgary Firefighters Burn Treatment Centre (CFBTC) at the Foothills Hospital since 1978. The CFBTC is the primary burn treatment referral centre for burn patients in southern Alberta, southeastern British Columbia, southwestern Saskatchewan and northern Montana.
More recently, the CFBTS recognized that creating opportunities in research to develop innovative treatments to regenerate the skin would be necessary to realize our ultimate objective. To this end, we invested $1 million dollars over 5 years (2015-2020) in order to develop the CFBTS Chair in Skin Regeneration and Wound Healing, which is currently held by Dr. Jeff Biernaskie.
We would like to thank all our sponsors, supporters and the Calgary Firefighters Association – Local 255 for their continued support throughout the years.
