A Johnston firefighter saluted the USA with a rockin’ tribute this Fourth of July.

Standing on the fender of a fire truck, Lt. Dean Venticinque and his guitar gave an electric performance of “The Star-Spangled Banner” Wednesday afternoon.

“Happy Birthday, America, from Johnston Fire Department Local 1950,” Venticinque says before playing an instrumental version of the song.

Johnston Firefighters shared a video of the performance on Facebook around 4:30 p.m.

“Dean you Rock!!! Happy 4th bro,” Randy Stone, a local musician, wrote in the comment section.

Others shared similar sentiments.

“Nice job buddy heard that all the way up the street lol,” Jerry Porter said.
