When it gets this cold, forget the uniforms.
Police and fire departments were backing off uniform requirements to allow officers and firefighters to dress warmer for the weather. Their latest challenge: Freezing sweat.
White River Township and Franklin firefighters were being allowed to dress for the cold instead of donning their uniforms. Greenwood police officers also aren’t being required to wear their normal uniforms, since officers might have to be out in the cold to help a stranded driver or respond to an accident, Greenwood Mayor Mark Myers said.
