Check out this sweet way to cool off.
Rock Island Officer Jon Cary is going around opening hydrants in neighborhoods.
Officer Cary blocked off the intersection of 10th Avenue and 14 1/2 Street while kids played under the sprinkler.
He also bought the water diversion attachment for the fire hydrant with his own money.
"It's good to see the community in a different way than I normally do," said Cary.
"That was really nice, and helpful, and thoughtful," said Braylon Walker, a neighborhood kid.
He also wants the kids to know to hydrate while playing outside in the scorching heat.
