Program keeping low-income, elderly residents cool this summer
OKLAHOMA CITY – A local electric company is working to help keep low-income and elderly residents cool during the summer heat.
OG&E announced that it is donating 1,000 electric fans to agencies serving low-income and elderly residents in 12 communities across Oklahoma and western Arkansas.
Although air conditioners are the best way to prevent heat-related illnesses, officials say fans can keep you comfortable.
In Oklahoma City, fans are being delivered to The Salvation Army Central Oklahoma Area Command, Areawide Aging Agency and Community Action Agency.
Residents who are in need of a fan can contact those organizations directly.
