This is a pretty wild scene you’re about to witness. During the final moments of Croatia’s win over Russia Saturday, a group of Croatian firefighters were called into duty.

They were absolutely locked into the game. Then the alarm rang out for their services, and not one of them wasted even a single millisecond to see how the game would end. Instead, they rushed to their gear and were out of the station in a matter of seconds.

Then the game ended, literally within seconds of them leaving the station as just a few were left behind to soak in the glorious moment.


That’s just the epitome of service. We salute those Croatian firefighters and wish them the best of luck as they await the World Cup Final between Croatia and France.
