Anyone who has served in the emergency services will probably confirm that creating and sharing morale is essential in order to be able to carry out what is an incredibly stressful job.
A ‘dark’ sense of humour, something we see on a regular basis from our oppos who message us, is something that most people outside of the emergency services would probably gawk at.
But sometimes, the only way you can process situations / incidents which you deal with, whether those situations have been caused intentionally or otherwise, is to laugh at them.
Not because you find such events funny, but because somehow laughing at something tricks the brain into not dwelling on a situation or set of circumstances which you have witnessed that could cause you a great deal of upset.
Combine the need to laugh with the fact that many members of the emergency services are always up for a challenge, then the outcome is inevitable!
So when confronted with videos being shared on social media of people trying to dance to the ‘baby shark’ song then, of course, our colleagues will understandably try and have a go themselves.
Last week we shared a video of Leicestershire Firefighters having a good go at trying to execute a perfect rendition of the now infamous baby shark ‘dance off’.
So, having been sent this video by a follower, it’s only right that we share the following footage of some medics trying to pull off what is a very complicated and very technical ‘dance’ that requires an enormous amount of coordination and concentration…aka the ‘baby shark’ dance.
The video of the firefighters that we shared last week doing the same thing has had nearly 200,000 views.
Let’s see if we can propel the viewing figures of this video to a similar number!
We are even starting to consider hosting our own version of ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ as we get quite a few videos of our oppos busting out some epic moves.
Maybe we will call it: ‘Britain’s Emergency Services Got Talent’!? – although it doesn’t really have the same ring to it if I am honest.
