The extreme heat we're experiencing is making working outside difficult for those whose jobs require them to be outdoors.
Employees with Little's Nursery in Greenville were busy doing lawn work outside the Cobblestone Townhomes Monday.
Workers say they're used to working in hot weather, but do try to get an early start to beat the heat. They say they also drink plenty of water throughout the day and take breaks as needed.
Health officials say its important to avoid heat related illnesses by doing exactly what those workers are doing...drinking plenty of water and taking breaks.
