The scorching temperatures on the SouthCoast make a good hair day a thing of the past. I

t's that stick-to-the-seat, take-a-cold-shower type of hot lately, so the Fairhaven Fire Department wanted to provide some sweet relief to anyone looking to beat the heat this weekend.

The department decided to stock up on giant freeze pops and pass them out for free to anyone who stops by the station.

"Anybody can stop by, any of the kids or even the teenagers if they'd like. We've had a bunch of them stopping in already," said Fairhaven firefighter Kevin Gonsalves.

Gonsalves said the department bought over a hundred pops, and they are ready to stock up on more if needed.

"We bought around 130 of them, and that's just to start," he said.

But the real question is, which flavor is the best?

Michael asked the department to set aside a couple of red pops while Gazelle had his fingers crossed for piña colada. For me, I'll always choose blue, but on hot days like this one and the hotter days to come, any flavor is my kind of flavor.

If there is a job where it's important to stay cool, fighting fires is certainly one of them, but it looks like they'll be depending on some ice-cold treats this weekend.

"It's very hot but lucky for us we have a lot of these freeze pops," Gonsalves said.

Stay cool and stay safe this weekend, and don't forget to stop by the Fairhaven Fire Department on Washington Street.
