ENTERPRISE, Ala. (WDHN)—In Enterprise, actual air temperatures and “heat indexes” are just as dangerous for municipal workers performing outdoor tasks there.

Enterprise Mayor William Cooper says all city supervisors have been instructed
to allow their workers more breaks and encourage them to hydrate with water and sports drinks.

With temps flirting to reach the century mark, it’s important to make sure those who are working outdoors
don’t become “dehydrated” and suffer heat stroke.

Those with “existing” health conditions could be even more prone to experiencing heat-related problems.

Mayor Cooper says “Safety First” is emphasized to department heads and supervisors and that those workers
who experience heat-related health issues get immediate medical attention.
