PETALING JAYA - Someone call 999 - the Malaysian Fire and Rescue Department has released a smoking-hot 2015 calendar.
Featuring mainly uniformed muscular male officers going about their daily routines or striking impressive poses, the calendar nevertheless also pays tribute to women officers.
The months of March and May are dedicated exclusively to a female pilot and a female ground officer within the department.
"Previously, we had a different concept for the calendars but this time we wanted to show that our officers are healthy and fit.
"It is also a mark of appreciation for our officers."
"All the models in the calendar are operations officers from around the country," said Norizan Saad, the Fire and Rescue Department's senior superintendent II of corporate management.
He added that the new concept was important to encourage everyone, including those within the department, to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Although the department had released many calendars in the past, this was only the second time the calendars had been made with a healthy and fit concept, said Norizan.
However, these exclusive calendars are not for sale and will be only made available to Fire and Rescue Department officers, state Fire and Rescue Departments and related ministries.
For a lucky few members of the public, the department's Facebook page gave out free copies of the calendar to those who could provide answers to questions relating to the duties of Fire and Rescue Department officers.
In less than 24 hours of the posting regarding the competition, it received nearly two thousand likes and more than a hundred replies, many of which were from the public who were eager to get their hands on the calendars.
