The official FDNY 2019, Calendar of Heroes was revealed on Wednesday.

Firefighter Joe Romeo of Engine 245 in Coney Island, and EMT Kristen Bernard are the cover models.

"I lost a lot of weight. I just thought that it's for a good cause," Bernard said.

She works as a fire department EMT.

"It's difficult, but it's rewarding knowing that I can help somebody in their time of need," she said.

Proceeds from the sale of the calendar go to the FDNY Foundation to Promote Fire Safety Education.

An FDNY spokeswoman said the calendar is a great opportunity to highlight the brave men and woman who train rigorously to keep New Yorkers safe.
