COACHELLA VALLEY, Calif. - Some local workers are coping with temperatures well beyond 100 degrees as they continue their day outside. All of them have taken precautions to make sure they stay safe during excessive heat.
The buzz of tools are audible as workers continue to install piping at the intersection of Bob Hope and Ramon in Rancho Mirage. While they are hard at work, the desert heat isn't letting up.
"You got to pace yourself," Vince Davadson, a foreman for Weka Inc., said. "You can't go out there and charge hard like is 75-degree weather. More or less than when it's 120. The experienced guys know it can really hurt you."
