Wichita will be a hot place for the next few days, but there’s a way residents can cool down.
The Salvation Army in Wichita is partnering with Westar Energy to offer free fans to residents from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Thursday.
More than 700 fans will be available, a news release said, at the Salvation Army’s location at 350 N. Market. Those who wish to take a fan will be required to show identification, proof of address and an electric bill.
According to the National Weather Service, heat index values are expected to be in the 100-105 range from Thursday through Saturday. The giveaway will be limited to one fan per household.
