Durango High School graduate Tom Martinez, now a firefighter with the Denver Fire Department, is the cover hunk for the 2013 Colorado Firefighters Calendar.

Firefighters who appear in the 2013 Colorado Firefighters Calendar will appear this weekend at the Wild Horse Saloon in Durango to sign autographs.

The firefighters include cover model Tom Martinez, 28, who grew up in Durango and graduated from Durango High School, said Kristi Pohly, a board member for the calendar. Martinez, a former U.S. Marine, works for the Denver Fire Department.

The $20 calendar is ranked No. 1 this year by firecritic.com, which ranks firefighters’ calendars each year from around the world.

All net proceeds from the sale of the calendar will go directly to the Children’s Hospital Burn Center. The signing event will be from 8 to 11:30 p.m. Saturday at the Wild Horse Saloon, 601 East Second Ave. Ten of the male firefighters who appear in the calendar will attend, Pohly said.
