  • WOT...a good cause

    5-alarm hunks' pecs appeal
    By ALICE McQUILLAN
    DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER

    Meet Mr. June, Firefighter Chris Stadulis, 31, 5-feet-10, 195 pounds, and a tae kwon do black belt whose bone marrow donation saved a 1-year-old boy from leukemia.Reynaldo Narvaez, 33, 5-feet-8, 185 pounds, a weights and cardio man, is expecting a lot of teasing at Brooklyn's Squad One for being Mr. May.

    November's pinup, part-time actor and dancer Hisham Tawfiq, 33, 6-feet, 195 pounds, believes that despite all the ribbing, most firefighters yearn to be a calendar man.

    "While everybody knocks those who get on, everyone still wants it," said Tawfiq, of Engine 69 in Harlem.

    Welcome to another year of raising awareness and money for fire prevention through the FDNY's "Calendar of Heroes." Befitting the tradition, 12 firefighters pose bare-chested, usually with a New York landmark in the background.

    It's all for a good cause - and so what if women drool over the carved pecs and six-pack abs while the guys back at the firehouse won't let up?

    "There will be a calendar on my locker, there will be a calendar where I keep my gear - probably [one] posted on my car when I leave the firehouse," said Narvaez.

    "It's all in good fun," he added.

    Staying in shape is also a way of life for firefighters.

    "I work out at a very intense rate. I don't rest between exercise, which builds stamina, which is good for the job," said Stadulis, of Ladder 160 in Bayside, Queens.

    The FDNY has been selling the beefcake calendars for the past five years, raising about a quarter-million dollars from the last edition, which included three firefighters killed at the World Trade Center.

    "There are other items in the licensing program that generate more revenue but none are as highly visible or get as much media attention as the calendar," said Stephen Ruzow, president of the Fire Safety Education Fund.

    Besides the hunk, every month brings a fire safety tip, such as plan two exits for every room or keep a 1-foot "circle of safety around lit candles."

    Tomorrow, all 12 firefighters in the new calendar will be on hand to sign their pictures at South Street Seaport's Pier 17 from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.

    For those who can't make the event, the $15 calendars can be ordered online at www.fdnyfirezone.org.

    I tried my best to make the cut but, alas, didn't seem to be what they wanted. I will, however send you one cheesecake shot for each proof of purchase of the above calendars.

              Oh my yummy yummy oooopppppsss was that out loud?

              CFD Hot Stuff Calendar supports the Calgary Firefighters Burn Treatment Society. All the events I've volunteered at this summer with the Firefighters Museum were in support of the Burn Treatment Centre so I got to hang around with a fair number of HOT HOT HOT firefighters from past and present calendars. Tried to do my part, bought a few beer LOL, walked around at that Stampede party with 10,000 people where Blue Rodeo played with a Hot Stuff Calendar in hand, trying to get people to donate by getting their picture taken with the firefighters and our 1928 Gotfredson Pumper for $5 and managed to get some instant cash donations.

              I can't afford the FDNY eye candy ummmmmmmmm I mean donation - will have to wait until next year

              Good cause though



              2nd attempt posting this, fingers crossed
