We began a journey five years ago in producing the very first Kansas Firefighter Calendar featuring Kansas firefighters to benefit Coats For Kids and the Kansas Firefighters Museum.
Through the birth of Coats For Kids, we discovered there was a silent group in our community with great needs. These were families who were experiencing layoffs and dramatic loss of income and yet did not qualify for aid. We reached out to social workers, teachers, firefighters and groups across Kansas to help us identify these families and invite their children to a special “shopping day with a firefighter” to select winter wear of their choice and enjoy a breakfast and hot chocolate at no cost.
Additionally, we hope to expand the museum to bring hundreds of artifacts in storage out for the public to enjoy. We also learned that we need to work to create a kid-friendly, interactive area.
After much research we launched efforts to produce a calendar that was and is still the first and only of its kind in Kansas with hopes to help achieve these goals. Firefighters from across the state are selected based on health and fitness, along with their service to their communities and their team effort within their departments. A judging event is now held every year with local celebrity judges helping in the final selection.
Every year we served over 500 children in Kansas through Coats For Kids and the new free Fire Camp for youth 6th through 9th grades.
Our work in this journey continues with the Kansas Firefighter Calendar as a means to support local kids in several different ways through keeping them warm for the winter, providing fire prevention education, sharing Kansas firefighting history, and doing so in a fun way for all.
