We are life and fire safety educators first, clowns, characters, and puppeteers second.
We will maintain our educational objective by not doing birthday
parties or other events that are for entertainment only; nor shall we
blow up balloons, use live fire or any other life threatening behavior
that contradicts our educational goals and values.
We shall work hard to teach correct skills and concepts to our students.
We shall give our students our utmost attention. An Idea we pass to them today may save a life tomorrow.
We will strive to become masters of our craft and then show others how to do the same.
We will always be a resource to our students. If we don’t know
the answer to a question we will find a resource that will provide the
answer to our students. Our strength lies within our collective group.
We will work our students hard.
We will ensure our students know what the words “Educational Characterization” mean.
We will promote our organization (LAFS) to anyone who will listen.
We will never take ourselves so seriously that we can’t have a good laugh at our expense.
We will divulge, only to our students, the secrets to any magic
that could be used to demonstrate a safety message which could result
in saving a life, preventing injury, or protecting property.
We will report to LAFS any documented saves as a result of educational characterization.
