Firefighters, police officers, and first responders put their lives on the line every single day to ensure our safety. For that reason, it’s always great to see them in situations where they can have fun. An opportunity to take a break from the important work they do is so important. Just like these first responders dancing to ‘Uptown Funk,’ the Chattanooga firefighters decided to entertain and bring awareness to the importance of learning cardiopulmonary resuscitation or CPR.
The video begins with a woman crying for help and when the firefighters arrive, they immediately begin giving CPR. To drive home the point of how important the timing for each compression is, firefighters perform a flash mob set to ‘Stayin’ Alive’ by the Bee Gees. Turns out that performing compressions to the beat of the song in your head will offer the recommended number of compressions of 100 per minute.

I had no idea that the timing of each chest compression was so important. Remembering the beat of the song ‘Stayin’ Alive’ makes it much easier to remember. It’s one of those skills you wish you never have to use; however, when you do it’s great to be prepared.
