Southside Firefighters celebrate the release of their 2012 calendar

Area firefighters are shedding some of their gear to raise money for a good cause.

Several Southside Firefighters posed for the department's 2012 calendar and Saturday night, they held a launch party at Savannah Smiles.

The calendars cost ten dollars and all the money goes to help burn victims and their families.

Gary, Jarriel, Asst. Chief of Southside Fire says, "we partnered several years ago with the Southeast Firefighter Burn Foundation over in Augusta and that helps burn survivors and their families with transportation, with burn garmets, with food, housing, anything they may need while the patients are in the hospitals, we help with the families"

This year you can get your calendar in the mail or you can go to one of the many events where you can meet the model firefighters and get a signature. You can check also out their facebook page for more events.
