Gulfport firefighter heats up cover of 2014 calendar

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - He is known for battling hot flames and searing heat. Now, a Gulfport firefighter is sizzling in a new calendar. The "2014 Mississippi Firefighter's Calendar" was unveiled Thursday night, and Brandon Necaise found out he is the face of November.

Not only that. Necaise made the cover after receiving the most number of votes through social media. There were 97 entries from across the state. The calendar features 18 firefighters, including one female firefighter.

Necaise has been with the Gulfport Fire Department for seven years. He entered the calendar contest to support a good cause. All proceeds benefit the Mississippi Burn Foundation.

"I'm still blown away from being on the cover out of all of Mississippi and 97 participants," said Necaise.

"I really haven't come to my senses yet that I'm on the cover. It means a lot to me being a firefighter. We run into a lot of burn patients and not all of them can afford the help they need."

Another South Mississippi firefighter is featured in the calendar. Randall Platt with Jackson County Fire Protection is "Mr. October."

Each calendar costs $20. You can purchase one at Necos Marketplace or Brandon's ATV Service in Pass Christian. You can also order a calendar by contacting or calling (601) 540-2995.
