SALT LAKE CITY -- Firefighters in Utah are stripping down for a good cause.

The calendar benefiting the American Cancer Society is the first of it's kind in Utah, according to organizer Nick Honsvick.

This type of calendar has been attempted several times but never made it to production, until now.

Honsvick says firefighters deal with cancer on several different levels, so they wanted to partner with the American Cancer Society.

No specific department is involved, firefighters approached on their own to participate.

A launch party for the calendars is happening tonight at Pierpoint Place at 163 W. Pierpont Ave, Salt Lake  City from 6-9 p.m. the tickets are free.

You can also purchase the calendars online. They are $20 each. More information on the Utah Firefighter Calendar Facebook page.
