Borrow a life jacket from any of the Albany Fire Stations.
It’s easy and FREE to keep kids afloat and safe around water:
- Choose a life jacket
- Fill out a release form
- Wear the jacket while in or near water!
- Return the jacket within one week
Life Jackets are kept at all four fire stations all year round. During the summer season, life jackets are available outside on the Loan-A-Life sign with extras inside the fire station. Life jackets can be obtained from inside the fire station during winter months.
The Loan-A-Life Jacket Program is fully funded through the Albany Firefighters Community Assistance Fund (AFFCAF), grants and donations.
