Danae Mines has just become the first female firefighter to appear in FDNY’s Calendar of Heroes. A Bronx firefighter for 11 years, she was initially refused a place in the annual fundraising beefcake calendar.“I wasn’t going to let anyone tell me I couldn’t do what I wanted to do,” Danae said. “I was determined. I wanted my picture in the calendar so that young girls and young women can see me and know that they can do this job.”
