Fire department gets creative teaching fire safety

Fire safety is an important topic that is routinely taught to elementary school children across the country. Sometimes it can be a real challenge to get the information to stick, but one fire department has come up with a pretty creative way of doing just that. App users click here.

The Mustang Fire Department in Oklahoma recently posted part of their fire safety skit to social media, and it's clear from all of the shares, comments, and reactions, that they have a hit on their hands.

Watch the video here.

The skit involves music and a little dancing. It's clear from the video that the kids are enjoying themselves. Hopefully that means they'll be more likely to retain these safety tips without even realizing it.

Since the video was posted, it's been shared more than 150,000 times. It appears the fire department has been doing this for a couple years. Check out video of their 2015 Fire Prevention Presentation here.

Don't you wish you were taught fire safety this way?
