A Visit with Raymond Nance from the Nebraska State Fire Marshal's Office

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 ray.nance@nebraska.gov.

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 daynark@gmail.com

Until next time, stay safe!
