With record temperatures well over 100 degrees and the extreme heat indices this week, the free fans offered by the Bryant Police Department have been going fast.[more]
At the start of the week, BPD had 10 fans available; as of Thursday morning, they were down to only one.
However, a sign-up list has been made and as more fans are brought to the police department, they will be given out as needed.
"When someone comes in after this last one goes, the ladies downstairs have started a waiting list," said Bryant Police Captain Phillip Newcomb. “When we get more fans and have some on hand, we will keep repeating the process until there are no more requests."
The BPD will have a few on hand at the office and will offer to get a fan for anyone in need.
"I will try to get them a fan the same day they come by," Newcomb said.
