Say G’day To The 2014 Australian Firefighters Calendar: Male Call

For more than 20 years, the musclebound firefighters of Queensland and New South Wales in Australia have been posing for annual charity calendars, raising more than $750,000 AUD (or about $680,000 USD) for the Royal Children’s Hospital Burns Centre at Westmead Hospital.

The calendars, which go for about $13, also help send a team to the Firefighter Games, which we understand is sort of like the Olympics for smoke-eaters. Actually, we think we’d rather watch that than the real Olympics.
