KAMLOOPS — It's a red-hot calendar featuring photos of 13 Kamloops Firemen, and it's all for a good cause.      

For $20 the 2017 Kamloops Firefighters Calendar is now available to be picked up at Fire Hall #1 on Summit Drive. This year, all proceeds from the calendar will be donated to the Royal Inland Hospital Foundation, and the British Columbia Professional Fire Fighters' Burn Fund. Over the past several years, members working with the Kamloops Firefighters Charitable Society have been able to raise thousands of dollars for different charities. Money from the 2017 calendar, will help with upgrades to 1-South, the Mental Health Unit at Royal Inland Hospital, that sees nearly 1,000 patients every year.
