ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Its not too late to get a copy of the Albany Fire department's 2014 Calendar.

On Saturday, the Albany Fire Department held a calendar signing event at Sam's Club on Westover Blvd.

Every year the department creates a new calendar featuring their firefighters, and donates some of the proceeds to area non-profits.

This year the A.F.D. will be giving the proceeds to the Flint River Chapter of the American Red Cross.

"We pretty much work hand in hand and when the fire department has to go to a fire and people get displaced from house fires the red cross steps in and has to go into their funds and give them money to put them in a hotel," says coordinator Donald Jackson.

Each month features a different firefighter, and has fire safety tips.
