Australian Firefighter Gets Down for the Git Up Challenge

A firefighter in Rollands Plains, New South Wales, showed off her slick dance moves while bringing some much needed joy to her community by taking part in the “Git Up” challenge.

Footage posted to the Sancrox/Thrumster Rural Fire Brigade Facebook page on Friday, November 15, shows a firefighter, Brittany Daly, dancing along to Blanco Brown’s song The Git Up at the Rollands Plain showground.

In the song, Brown directs dancers to step along to his instructions. The Git Up was released in early May, followed by a video featuring Lainey Wilson and a how-to dance video by Blanco Brown.

“Sometimes it’s not about being on the end of a hose … sometimes you simply need to cheer up the folk who are camping out,” the fire brigade wrote on Facebook.

As of Monday evening, 41 wildfires were still burning with 1328 yet to be contained, according to the NSW Rural Fire Service.

On Saturday morning, a DC-10 air tanker capable of carrying 38,000 liters of water and fire suppressant landed in New South Wales to provide assistance to the fires. Credit: Sancrox/Thrumster Rural Fire Brigade via Storyful
