Citrus County Fire Clown Leads Session at State Conference
Citrus County Fire Rescue attended the Florida Fire Marshals and Inspectors Association annual Fire and Life Safety Educators Conference June 19, through June 22, 2018 at the Wyndham, Lake Buena Vista, FL. Educators from throughout the United States attend each year to learn new and innovative education techniques from educators from throughout the state and country.
At this year’s conference Citrus County firefighter, Lt. Anthony Seguin facilitated a session entitled, “Education is Serious, Learning Doesn’t Have to Be!” The class objectives were to discuss Firefighter Clown History, Citrus County Fire Rescue’s fire clown educational program development, along with future plans, as well as leaving participants with two lesson plans to take back and implement in their agencies.
A highlight for participants was mastering the craft of twisting balloons to create animals, a very important part of clown training! Lt. Seguin is looking forward to the possibility of delivering this program at other conferences throughout the state and country.
