I would like to know what your policy is on HOT WEATHER for your outside crews. I have been seeing a lot of guys out and about on the streets when it is 102 degrees outside. Do you have a policy that keeps the guys inside if it hits over a certain degree or do they stay outside all day taking the chance of becoming overheated and sick?

The hottest time of the day is usually between 4 and 6 pm. The Public Works Department begins work every morning at 7 am and finishes each day at 3:30 pm with 30 minutes for lunch. Every vehicle is equipped with a gatorade type of drink. In order to provide for pubic health and safety in Frisco, there is always work that must be done 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, including public works, parks, fire, and police. But, the safety and health of our workers will always be of paramount importance to us. If you have any questions, please contact me at 972-335-5520.
