What's hot, steamy, shirtless, cute and adorable all at the same time? The iconic Australian Firefighters Calendar, of course! Since 1993, this annual treat of jaw-droppingly handsome firefighters photographed with endearing furballs and majestic horses has donated millions of dollars to Australian charities and has become the world's most popular calendar. As it celebrates its 30th anniversary, it unveils a new team of handsome hunks for its 2023 edition. The proceeds will go toward supporting medical research into sourcing better methods to treat severe burns in children.

This year we also have the chance to get to know a little more about the firefighters themselves. In a press release provided to Upworthy, the Australian Firefighters Calendar team shed light on the lives of some of "the real-life heroes who take part in the world's most iconic calendar." One of those firefighters is Dennis Fay, "a proud indigenous Torres Strait islander," who is a returned military veteran and a former world-ranked Muay Thai fighter "Along with his full-time job as an Aviation Firefighter, Dennis is now also fighting for another cause, something more important than anything he could achieve in the ring... the preservation of marine life surrounding Badu (a tiny island located between Australia and New Guinea)."

Since the sustainability of the ocean is vital to his people's way of life, Dennis is doing his best to restore Badu's once-pristine oceans and beaches back to their former glory by recycling discarded plastic and transforming it into diving flippers. "Our hope is that by promoting authentic indigenous artists on our flippers that we can share our connection to nature with the world. Our aim is to repurpose something that was harmful to our environment into a product we can use back in the ocean to support the community. I have aligned our work with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals program (SDG), which is of particular importance to our island and the UN's Responsible Consumption and Production and Life Below Water initiatives. These programs are going to be very important in transforming our part of the world and providing a better way of life for my community," he explained.

Another popular face seen in the Australian Firefighters Calendar is that of Brenden Purvis, who was a member of his local Rural Fire Brigade (RFS) from the age of 16 before he became a Royal Australian Airforce firefighter. "Serving in the Rural Fire Brigade with my community members inspired me to serve my country further.  When I was old enough, I enlisted with the Royal Australian Air Force. Before I left for my first deployment overseas, I was also able to convince my Mum to get involved in the Wamuran Rural Fire Brigade organization too. Mum is still a serving member of the Rural Fire Brigade, far exceeding the number of years I was there. Mum’s involvement in serving our community fills me with immense pride," Purvis said.

The 2023 Australian Firefighters Calendar features all the fan-favorite editions including the dog calendar featuring the firefighters with rescue dogs from Safe Haven Animal Rescue and All Breeds Canine rescue. While the breathtakingly gorgeous horse calendar features therapy horses from Healing Hooves, the cats featured in this year's cat calendar were rescues from Best Friends Felines. There's also a special new edition this time around, featuring sizzling hot images of firefighters in denim. Since the calendar has become quite popular in the United States over the years, the Australian Firefighters Calendar will repay the love by continuing to support U.S. charities for the second year in a row.

"We are thrilled to be the recipients of sales for the Australian Firefighters Calendar for two consecutive years, the calendar funds will directly help support our Rescue Rebuild renovation at the Wildlife Clinic of Rhode Island to allow the clinic to take in more animals every year and help reduce the stress for the wildlife and the staff," said Liz Baker, the CEO of Greater Good Charities which renovates animal shelters, domestic violence shelters, veterans housing and homeless shelters through its Rescue Rebuild program. Donations from this year's calendar will also help support the Council of Australian Volunteer Fire Associations (CAVFA) in the form of much-needed equipment for our army of volunteer firefighters.

As always, the calendar continues its support of the Kids With Cancer Foundation and works towards conserving Australian wildlife by donating funds to community-based organizations around the country, like Byron Bay Wildlife Hospital which provides all of its expert veterinary care free of charge and operates on the frontline of wildlife protection and biodiversity conservation. "For 25 years Kids With Cancer Foundation exists to practically help every one of the nearly 800 children diagnosed with cancer each year in Australia and make today easier for them and their families. KWCF does this by providing direct financial assistance in the form of payments for mortgage, rent, transportation, utility, and other bills or by supplying much-needed food vouchers and whitegoods" said Peter Bodman, the Director & Founder of Kids With Cancer Foundation.
