911 agency releases new PSA lip sync video

Rock County 911 releases follow-up to their viral “Uptown Funk” video to spread awareness about the “Problem” of 911 hang-ups and butt dials


JANESVILLE, Wis. — Rock County 911 has released a new lip dub video, this time to raise awareness of accidental 911 calls. 

The county’s first responders danced and sang to Ariana Grande’s chart-topping single “Problem” to point out how accidental 911 calls can happen and how the public can avoid them. Minimizing accidental calls allows first responders to respond to real medical and other types of emergency calls. 

Hanging up after accidentally calling, letting young children play with cellphones and misdials were cited by the county as a problem. In the video, the team recommended taking batteries out of cell phones and locking phone screens before placing them in a pocket. 

The county's previous video, an “Uptown Funk” lip dub, has had over over 3.5 million views.
