Colorado Firefighter Calendar Tryouts
The 2017 Colorado Firefighter Calendar tryouts were held at the EXDO Event Center on May 7th, 2016. Twenty-four firefighters competed for a spot in next year’s calendar by answering questions in their dress blues and parading across the state in part of their bunker gear. Calendar models volunteer their time to raise funds, attend events, educate children, and increase awareness for burn centers around the state. Net proceeds from the sale of calendars and special events directly benefit the Children’s Hospital Burn Center and other centers across the state. Firefighters from Adams County, Bennett, Big Sandy, Black Hawk, Brighton, Buckley, Colorado Springs, Denver, Elk Creek, Grand Lake, Mountain View, North Metro, South Adams County, Stratton, Thornton, Wellington and West Metro participated in the event.
