Video: Alabama fire department uses funny video to teach the proper way to use 9-1-1 'dagnabbit'

Taking a humorous approach to informing residents about public safety and the appropriate use of 9-1-1, the Tuscaloosa Fire & Rescue has created a silly video reminding residents not to call 9-1-1 for non-emergencies.

"What we try to do is make sure that No. 1 when people call 9-1-1 [they know] we are going to send somebody, and we want them to call 9-1-1 if they have an emergency," Fire Chief Alan Martin said in a story posted at, adding that if they have a non-emergency, residents should call a non-emergency number and expect an appropriate response to their situation.

The video, the idea of the departments firefighters,  was posted to Tuscaloosa Fire & Rescue's Facebook page today, featuring Fire Lt. George Harbin playing all of the roles. 

The video was produced by Lance Holloway of Holloway Productions.
