Fans collected during drive handed out to seniors


BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — The first fans from Wednesday’s “Keep Kern County Cool” fan drive were handed out Friday.

Seniors showed up at the Volunteer Center to the fan they signed up for.

Brenda Ratliff, Executive Director of the center, says the summer heat can be deadly for older adults.

About 300 seniors signed up to receive fans and more will be given out next week.
