Founded in 2011, by a group of visionaries who wanted to do more for burn survivors in the community and raise fire safety awareness, the Colorado Firefighter Calendar is comprised of a volunteer board of directors who plan and produce the calendar, calendar events and child safety educational programs. Firefighters from around the state volunteer time to raise funds, attend events, educate children on fire prevention and increase awareness for the Children's Hospital Colorado Burn Center and other centers around Colorado. These men and women represent one of the noblest professions and the calendar serves as a tribute to firefighters and the people they serve. Net proceeds received from the sale of calendars and special events will directly benefit the Children's Hospital Burn Center and centers across the state.
Colorado Firefighter Calendar, Inc. was formed in late 2011 by a group of volunteers who wanted to continue on the tradition of the firefighter calendar and in raising funds to support Children's Hospital as well as expand the reach of the company to educate people on fire prevention methods. We hired an executive director, Tim Schuetz, in June 2014. With the exception of Tim, all officers, members of the Board and committees are volunteers.
In November 2016, the Colorado Firefighter Calendar, Inc. (CFC) proudly donated $135,000 to the Children's Hospital Colorado Burn Center and Burn Camps Program, bringing our five year total to over $475,000!
