This evening I had the pleasure of visiting with Raymond Nance, Deputy Fire Marshal for the Nebraska State Fire Marshal's Office. Ray and I have known each other for a few years, and I learned a couple of days ago that he utilized a ventriloquist dummy, "Deputy Dan" in his fire safety programming.
I was intriqued with Ray's method of sharing fire safety, and I had never been up close to a ventriloquist dummy. I could hardly wait to interview Ray once he told me about Deputy Dan!
It so happens on this trip that I have my soft puppet, Melanie with me. Melanie helped me interview Ray and Dan, and we had more fun! You can watch the interview at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=62he6aYGQgA.
If you are looking for a unique way to share the fire safety message, you'll love this interview!
Should you wish to contact Ray, his email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have a program, event or idea that you would like to share on the Playing it Safe Blog, please feel free to contact me at email@example.com
Until next time, stay safe!
