Calendar boys vow to heat up our city
WAYNE, you can put this reporter's fire out any time.
The hunk is Mr February in this year's fighfighters' calendar, which hangs on my kitchen wall. He has kind eyes.
Sorry, Wayne, but it's time to pick a new firie crush. The 2013 calendar is on sale.
And some of its stars are making their way to Gladstone this week.
Calendar co-ordinator Bruce Mitchell has been a firefighter for 25 years.
He's also posed twice, once in '95 and again the next year.
Money raised from the calendar goes to the Royal Children's Hospital Burns Unit.
Bruce said the calendars had raised $750,000 for the hospital over two decades.
When asked what it was about firefighters that drove women so wild, Bruce was no-nonsense.
"We just come when someone's in trouble and we save them. It's humbling to be held in such high regard.
The firefighters' movements:
- Arrive Thursday
- Set up in Stockland Gladstone to sell and sign calendars Friday and Saturday until noon
- Special dinner for competition winners at the Central Lane Hotel on Friday night
- Calendar launch party at Central Lane Hotel Saturday at 7pm
- Tickets are $10. Glass of sparkling wine on arrival. The first 50 women in the door receive a free signed calendar
- Phone 49722166 for details

All you have to do is describe in 25 words or less your ultimate rescue fantasy.
Are you inside a burning building? Stuck on a roof? Trapped down a mine shaft?
Keep it (relatively) clean as we'll publish some of the more creative entries.
