The evidence? A three-minute viral video that initially deceives the viewer with a training session of two dozen Chattanooga Fire Academy graduates hoisting ladders and rolling stretchers, then lights up with a blast of robot funk — the opening bars to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” — and dancing firefighters.

“You never know when you might have to dance your way up out of a situation,” recent fire academy graduate Brenton Davenport said. “Always good to be versatile in everything.”
