The head has freeze plug(s) to prevent engine and head from cracking under extreme hot (over-heating) and cold (sub-zero temp).
When the coolant system over-heat,the hose and radiator are the 1st defense.
If the drive keep driving the freeze plug will give out to protect the engine block and head.
Here are few pictures of freeze plus.
