INDIANAPOLIS–Drinking water, being in the shade, and wearing loose-fitting clothing are a few ways you can beat the summer heat. IMPD also used popsicles Thursday to keep people hydrated and put a smile on their face. 

They passed out over 200 popsicles on the east side of Indianapolis along with a couple of cases of water as part of their “Popsicle Patrol.”  

While they handed those things out, they reminded people to still take all of the normal precautions and to call 911 if you are experiencing any kind of heat-related illness. 

On Facebook, IMPD said: 

Thank you officers for using part of your day to help some Indianapolis residents hydrate and have a cool treat at the same time.
