Heat Dangers Lead To Fan Giveaway
A heat advisory in Central Ohio leads to a call for more donated fans to give to lower-income and elderly residents. Communications Director for Life Care Alliance, Michelle Jones said demand for fans started in the spring.
“This year it started getting hot at the end of May during Memorial Day, so right now we’ve given out nearly 1,000 fans,” Jones said.
Jones said hot weather can be more of a health threat for those who stay home.
“Some people, you go into their homes and they’re afraid to open up their windows because they’re afraid they’re going to be attacked. And you know they don’t have air conditioners. If they do have an air conditioner ,they’re afraid to run it because of the increased utility bill,” Jones explained.
She adds last year 4,000 fans were passed out. Fan donations are accepted at any fire station in the Columbus area.
