Staffordshire firefighters perform YouTube hit live Push The Button

Staffordshire firefighters perform YouTube hit live

Fire alarm testing campaign
Staffordshire firefighters are performing their hit later this week

A group of Staffordshire firefighters is performing a live version of a fire safety video that has become a "viral" hit.

Their cover of the Sugababes' hit Push the Button encourages people to regularly test whether their alarms work.

To date the video has had more than 44,000 YouTube views online.

Local dancers have been drafted in to take part in the show at Hanley fire station.

The live show - to take place at 14:30 BST - is timed to coincide with the release of a new smart phone app involving fire testing.

The 59p app reminds users to test their alarms once a week, with proceeds going to The Fire Fighters Charity.

The song was co-written and sung by Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service's marketing officer, Rachelle Hewitt.

She also persuaded two publishing companies to give her the rights to use the song.

The video includes reworded lyrics and shows firefighters going about their daily work as they dance to the song.
