It only took 154 seconds for firefighters from Wilson, Rocky Mount and Greenville to drive home important safety tips, but in doing so, they won big for their communities, taking home the grand prize in a national video contest urging people to close their doors before going to sleep. “It’s incredible to see these amazing interpretations of the Close Before You Doze message,” said Zoe Susice, director of research amplification at the UL Firefighter Safety Research Institute. “We were happy to see three fire departments so inspired that they came together to make their brilliant original song and educational music video to remind people to put the Close Before You Doze message into practice and share it with their community.” The trio joined forces for a video that bested dozens of entries submitted by departments across the country.
