Rapping firefighters burn up the web
Midland firefighters represent! As part of Fireworks Safety Month — designated in June — and in time for the Fourth of July, a group of firefighters from the small Michigan town decided to film “Firefighters With Advice,” a short rap video with a summer fireworks safety message, and the video has become a hit on the social networking video site YouTube, according to the Associated Press.
Forgoing hip-hop duds for firefighting garb, Mark Laux, Steve Markowski and Roger Bebeau do their best to drop some safety knowledge with lines like, “Being unsafe makes you think you’re cool, but follow these nine rules, don’t be a fool.”
