It's heating up outside, but Bucks County senior citizens don't have to sweat it!

Free fans are available to eligible seniors through the county's senior centers.

These fans are offered on a first-come, first-served basis, thanks to a recent donation from PECO.


Extreme hot weather can cause serious heat-related illnesses such as heat stroke or heat exhaustion. Seniors are urged to stay inside with an air conditioner or in a ventilated room with a fan.

Unless restricted, drink plenty of water and/or non-alcoholic drinks to prevent dehydration.

Residents are encouraged to check often on elderly neighbors, friends and family members.
