People over age 50 are encouraged to stay in a cool place and use air conditioning and/or fans to keep from overheating.
We want to make many more seniors without fans happy as well this summer. If you want to get in on the KSLA News 12 fan drive, it's pretty easy. We've teamed up with the Caddo Council on Aging to collect fans now through Labor Day.
You can drop your fans off here at the station at 1812 Fairfield Avenue in Shreveport.
