The Lexington Police Department wants to beat the heat with its annual Fan Donation and Elderly Check Programs.
Police collect fans and then identify elderly or disabled people who need them. They also conduct daily welfare checks, Chief Terrence Green said.
Lexington residents who need a fan can stop by the department at 111 Maiden Lane between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
For information, call the department at (803) 359-6260.
