Beginning today,  some relief from the summer heat is being offered to Wilmington residents, as the City will begin to distribute free electric fans. The City will give away fans each Monday and Thursday from 10 a.m. to Noon in the lobby of the Redding Government Building, located at 800 North French Street.

The distribution system is more limited this year due to COVID-19. All residents who come by to pick up a fan MUST practice social distancing and MUST wear a mask. Other guidelines for receiving a fan include:

  • Recipients must be City residents and must be 65 years of age or older
  • Recipients also must show proof of age and residency and cannot have received a FREE fan in 2019

Residents are advised not to use an electric fan when the temperature outside is higher than 95 degrees because this can increase the risk of heat-related illness. While fans create airflow, they can also provide a false sense of comfort which does not actually reduce body temperature.
