MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – The Horry County Police Department is once again helping senior citizens across the region beat the heat.

For the second year in a row, the HCPD’s Fantastic Seniors Program provides fans to seniors to help during the extreme heat, according to a post on the department’s Facebook page.

The fans are for senior citizens over the age of 55 who live in Horry County and cannot afford or have access to air conditioning.

According to the post, HCPD officers delivered over 100 fans to seniors in 2015.

For residents in need or who know someone who could benefit from a fan, they are asked to call one of the numbers listed below:

  • Central precinct: (843) 915-8340
  • North precinct: (843) 915-5685
  • West precinct: (843) 915-5351
  • South precinct: (843) 915-7953

Those who want to make a donation to the Fantastic Seniors Program can do so by contacting (843) 915-8002.
