LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Local street food vendors are taking a different approach to beating the heat this summer.

If it's hot outside, it's even hotter inside a mobile food truck.

During the summer months, food trucks are looking forward to a rise in profit but the increase in temperatures can be difficult.

If you own or work for a food truck consider the time of day.

You should limit activities during the hottest part of the day and make adjustments to the length of shifts.

Food truck owners should also park strategically, not facing the sun and in the shade if possible.

Finally, employees should always stay hydrated, drink plenty of water and take short breaks frequently.
