As summer approaches, help your neighbors stay cool & comfortable by donating to CPD’s Fan the Heat Program. This program was established to assist individuals who are most vulnerable to the heat: senior citizens, residents with medical concerns or disabilities and families with small children. Throughout the summer, the department collects fans, air conditioners and financial contributions, specifically to help those in need. For assistance or to learn more about eligibility requirements, call the Columbia Police Department’s Crime Prevention Unit at 545-3555 or Telephone Response Unit at 545-3500.
