Among the 12 firefighters featured in the 1996 Washington State Council of Firefighters Burn Foundation calendar is Pete Briner of the Woodinville Fire and Life Safety District.
Briner, a 25-year-old resident of Woodinville, is pictured scaling a wall in full firefighting gear.
Rod Heivilin, volunteer and president of the Burn Foundation, happily reported that the calendar has proved very popular and is already in its second printing.
"The public response has been utterly amazing," Heivilin said.
The successful sales are especially important to the foundation, which underwrites local burn recovery research.
"One hundred percent of the public money received goes exclusively to grants," Heivilin said.
The $5 calendars are available at Costco, University Books, Tower Records, and Larry's in Bellevue.
They are also available by mail order for $7, with the extra charge to cover handling and shipping, by calling 1-800-847-6572.
