Cambridge fire crew delivers hot and smoky choreography for “thrilling” video on Halloween safety


It’s pretty safe to say that the crew from Cambridge Parkside Fire Station has some pretty hot choreography skills.

For the last month and a half, six members of the crew- known as Cambridge Black Watch- spent their lunch hours learning a routine, with the help of a local dance teacher.

The crew commander and another firefighter reportedly came up with the idea to do a “Thriller” video after their hugely successful Mary Poppins-themed video last year, about chimney maintenance.

They figured everyone loves Michael Jackson and they wanted to spread the word about Halloween safety in a fun and creative way.

So the crew channeled their inner zombies and recreated the King of Pop’s iconic Thriller video, according to Cambridge News.

The video ends with one of the firemen delivering a series of essential safety messages about the dangers of flammable children’s costumes.

“The video is just an addition to what we do for our job. If it works really well then that’s a bonus,” said crew commander Jeff Whitlam.

So, while bringing this 1982 classic to life – the fire crew also passed on some good advice:

“Only buy children’s Halloween costumes from reputable outlets, Look for the CE safety mark on outfits, Never let children go anywhere near a naked flame, and in the event of a costume catching fire remember to STOP, DROP and ROLL.”
