ALBANY, GA (WALB) - South Georgia first responders modeled for the camera this morning, to help the Red Cross.

Firefighters bared their chests and posed for pictures to be used in a new calendar, called Hometown Heroes.

Police officers from the Albany Police Department, Dougherty County Police, and Camilla Drug Task Force will also be featured in the calendar.

All the money will go to the Southwest Georgia Chapter of the American Red Cross, which means a lot to these firefighters.

"We turn the victims over to them after a fire, and it's good to know when I leave they are in good hands. The Red Cross will be there to help them," says Captain Keith Ambrose of the Albany Fire Department. 

The Hometown Heroes calendar will be available the first of December at several area stores to be announced.
