How it works It's free and easy!
Find a kiosk at:
- All five Albany Fire stations
- Bowman Park (summer only)
- Bryant Park (summer only)
Find a life jacket that is the right size and fit for you or your child. Test to make sure it isn't too big.
Scan the QR code on the kiosk to fill out the use agreement and you're ready to use your life jacket to stay safe around the water. Please return life vests within one week of use so others may also benefit from the program.
How it's paid for
The Life Jacket Program is funded by grants as well as through donations to the Albany Firefighters Community Assistance Fund (AFFCAF). If you would like to make a donation towards the Life Jacket Program, please call 541-917-7700.
