FDNY Firefighters, EMTs and Paramedics from the Official FDNY 2017 Calendar of Heroes will be signing purchased copies of the calendar on Friday, April 15 from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. at Herald Square in Manhattan. The calendar is now on sale at www.FDNYShop.com. This year’s calendar is two calendars in one – with a 12 month version featuring the men of the FDNY and 12 month version featuring the women of the FDNY. In addition, FDNY EMTs and Paramedics are included among the calendar models for the very first time.
“I’m proud that the 2017 is the first calendar the Department has produced which truly represents all of our heroes – the men and women who risk their lives as Firefighters, EMTs and Paramedics every day to keep New York City safe,” said Fire Commissioner Daniel A. Nigro.
The FDNY 2017 Calendar of Heroes is the only official calendar of the New York City Fire Department. All proceeds from the sale of the calendar go directly to the FDNY Foundation, the not-for-profit arm of the FDNY which was established to promote fire safety education for residents of New York City and to provide professional development, training and education for FDNY members. In 2016, the FDNY Foundation funded community outreach events which brought fire safety education programs and CPR training to more than 740,000 New Yorkers.
Each month on the calendar features a fire and life safety message ensuring that each person who purchases the calendar can remain safe all year long. Additional FDNY safety information is available any time at www.FDNYSmart.org.
