Some of the stars of the calendar stopped by to talk more about the FDNY Foundation and its partnership with Animal Care Centers of NYC.

“It was a little nervous. You know, we basically had to be the accessory for the animals. That was the real star,” firefighter Stephanie Kubicek said.

The FDNY hopes to raise awareness about animal adoption in New York.

Proceeds from calendar sales go to the FDNY Foundation, which supports fire safety education for New Yorkers and CPR training.
