HONOLULU -- What started as an idea to help fight breast cancer got some Honolulu EMS personnel in hot water. A group of female paramedics wanted to make a calendar to raise awareness of breast cancer and bring in money for the Susan B. Komen Race For The Cure Foundation. But when Komen officials got a look at the photos the project was dropped, and EMS officials said an investigation was under way.

In June, KITV video taped one of the photo sessions as EMS ladies posed on ambulances. KITV is a sponsor of the Komen Race For The Cure, and the Komen Foundation suggested KITV do a story on the making of calendar.
