Firefighters Put the Message in the Song

Sometimes some of the most important lessons in life can also be the most boring for a child to listen to and pay attention. Learning about what to do in case of an emergency is definitely on the list. Children often cannot perceive of the dangers that may lay before them.

But the members of the Mustang Fire Department in Oklahoma have come up with the perfect solution to not only capture and keep the children’s attention, but to help them remember what they learned…music!

The first responders have channeled their inner rock stars and have put important messages of fire safety to the music of various pop tunes including “The Banana Boat Song” (Day-O) by Harry Belafonte, “Tell Me More” from the musical “Grease”, “We Will Rock You” from Queen, “Blue Suede Shoes” by Elvis Presley, and “Walk Like a Man” by Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons.

While most of the elementary school aged children have probably never heard of any of these songs, they certainly will remember the message placed within the tunes about staying low in a fire to avoid smoke and about the proper care and use of smoke detectors.
