Albany-  Blue reflectors on local roadways will act as a beacon to fire fighters at night.

These small blue reflectors are being placed on Albany's roadways to mark the location of fire hydrants.  Many hydrants have become hidden behind bushes making them hard to find at night.

"We have an excess of four thousand hydrants in what we call Albany, Dougherty County and we'll be marking everyone of them, and a night especially the firefighters will be able to see them if they need to catch the fire hydrant," said Chief James Carswell, Albany Fire Dept.

The $14,000 project was funded with remaining SPLOST, four money. The reflectors are set in a pattern to tell fire fighters exactly where the hydrant is located.
