CHICO, Calif. - Workers and businesses in downtown Chico are preparing for the triple-digit temperatures forecasted for the week.

Businesses say precautions like going to the shade to cool off and stocking up on lots of water can help workers and customers from overheating. 

Workers from The Banshee say the heat even affects how late people come in. 

"When it gets hot we sell a lot more beers. People tend to come out much later. Our dinner rush starts at 7:30 p.m. or 8 p.m. now, where in the winter it was like 5 p.m. or 5:30 p.m. People come out in larger numbers later at night," said Jarreau Gilbert, a worker for The Banshee.

To beat the heat, Burgers and Brew typically has misters and fans outside. 

Workers at that restaurant noticed that people were ordering more ciders and lighter beers.

"Our patio is always open we always have the fans on and it's nice to be outside and have a cold drink and have that balance you know battling that summer heat having a nice cold drink and some good food," said Jason Stephens, an employee at Burgers and Brew. 

As it gets hotter people should be aware of symptoms of heat-related illnesses like fatigue, dizziness, headaches, muscle cramps and increased thirst.
