West Columbia, SC (WLTX)- The West Columbia Police Department needs help replenishing their fan supply.

"This initiative is vital to our community," said Chief Dennis Tyndall.

Their "Fan the Heat" program began more than 8 years ago and is responsible for providing hundreds of fans to those in need.

"We have walked into conditions where it is really hot and just terrible conditions to live in," said Chief Tyndall.

If you would like to donate a new fan or if you need a fan, contact Lt. John Norman at 936-6280. Tax deductible financial contributions should be made to West Columbia Police Officers' Foundation.
