The idea of a 'firefighter calendar' started as mess-room banter at Colchester fire station in 1993. The idea took off slowly and, using men from the station as models, a very basic calendar was produced on a borrowed black and white printer. Nobody could have predicted the enthusiastic response that this early effort produced. The men progressed to making a bigger and better calendar in colour that they could sell and raise money for the Fire Services National Benevolent Fund. The product went from strength to strength and UK Firefighter Publications Ltd was set up by the original men at Colchester fire station.

    • と、あるように割と最近始まってて、これの収益も消防士さんの慈善基金の資金集めにつかわれてるみたい。はじめは誰も大きな反応があるおもってなかったらしいね。事業がだんだんでかくなって、いまではこれをはじめた消防署に出版局ができただけでなく、手帳とかほかのグッズも作ってるみたいよ。
