Default Is there Air Conditioning at any Kansas prison??

Does anyone know if there's any Air Conditioning at any of the Kansas prisons? My husband really has a hard time with the heat and his high blood pressure gets even higher. He gets real bad headaches. Plus they are always changin up his meds it seems like. Just wondering. Is AC out of the question for any inmate? Thanx y'all!

Damn, they don't provide it in TX, where it's a lot hotter than Kansas.....but then TX is harder on a lot of things than other places.....hope your hubby gets to have it. I realize people used to live without it, but I don't understand how!

My husband is at Norton and they do not have it there. He said they have big fans that circulates the air - but otherwise no air conditioning.

I think Stockton is the only place with it. I don't think the building has any windows. Does your husband have a fan? My friend is at Lansing East min. and the window in his room has been bricked over. Why??? There are 2 rooms like that in his building, all the other rooms have windows. Luckily the heat doesn't bother him too much, he says it's ok with a fan but he wouldn't complain to me anyway.

My hubby is in lansing.. he was on the hilll and his windows were open and free but the only place in lansing that has ac is T cell house where the min wage worker live.. beside that no ac.. he now lives in max now.. and he said that he has to put up his bed sheet on his cell door because the sun gets so hot he's drenched in his sweat... he says even with all of his clothes off with his little fan he sweats like he's in a mini oven.

Anybody on blood pressure medicine does not need to be in the sun so I assume that is because of the heat. I am on it and I know how I react to heat inside or outside. It's hard to breath. Many other medicines are like this. I think all prisons should have air condition unless it's in Alaska. Just because they are there does not mean they are not deserving of it. If it were cooler a lot of them might take a nap or read a book instead of getting into trouble. I'm not one to post much on here but I felt this necessary.
