NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — For the first time ever, the women of the Nashville Fire Department have created their own charity calendar.

The city’s male firefighters have shot a calendar for the last couple of years and now it’s the ladies’ turn.

Laura Hitchcox has been with the Nashville Fire Department for 20 years as an EMT. She organized the charity calendar.

“We’ve got all ages, shapes, sizes, colors,” said Hitchcox. “It doesn’t matter if you’re a size zero or a size 20. Be proud of who you are and own who you are.”

Hitchcox hopes that the calendar will empower the women of Nashville to be sexy and feel good about themselves.

“Women can be positive role models in the city,” said Ann Dashiell. “I chose to be in front of the TSU sign for my shoot. I work in north Nashville and this represents the area I serve. I also went to TSU.”

Lori Thurman chose the Music City Raceway as her shoot location. Her daughter is a junior drag racer and was on set for the shoot.

“She was right there with me through the whole thing,” she said. “She’s like ‘come on mommy you can do it, you can do it!'”

Hitchcox hopes people like the calendar enough to buy it.

All the proceeds will go to Box 55 Association, which provides on-site support for firefighters in the field, and to Camp Phoenix. Camp Phoenix is a free summer camp for child burn victims.

The ladies will be selling the calendars Saturday at the Lipstick Lounge in east Nashville. Their website will also be live on Monday where you will be able to purchase a calendar and have it shipped to you.
