Every New Yorker and many lovers of NYC are familiar with the annual FDNY firefighters calendar composed previously of super hunky guys who have worked out a the gym for a year to achieve the right degree of perfection with corrugated abs and and bulging biceps.
In 2015 however the very first female firefighter made an appearance ion the calendar and when the world of male ascendancy in the FDNY did not collpase in a heap, the powers that be decided to double down in 2017 and include an equal number of female firefighters in teh calendar.
While it’s a way to go before the calendar is published so you to buy it for a Christmas present for your nearest and dearest, the New York Post has done us all a favor and published shots from the all important shoot.
And as you can see from the video, female firefighters, are…. well female and they also look ready for anything and can probably be trusted to save you if your NYC house or apartment catches alight. Whew, what a relief.
Now the proceeds from these calendars go to a good cause, education of New Yorkers in fire safety and further education for firefighters themselves but can we now agree that 1) FDNY firefighters of both sexes are good looking. 2) FDNY firefighters of both sexes are competent and can the FDNY please make sure that the real on the ground FDNY education, promotion and delivery of services is now as equal in all respects as the calendar. That would real porgress.
