Meet our Performers

Deanna "Dee Dee" Hartmier and Valerie "Puff" Meiners got the inspiration to teach Safety at Clown Camp Wisconsin in 2004 when they first saw the Firefighters and Police present their safety shows.   It was then that they felt this was something they had to do.  If only to save just one child from accident, fire, bullying etc.

In 2008 they became members of the Arizona Fire and Burn Education Association (AFBEA) and attended their Characterization Camp to get the correct training. AFBEA have been holding their University for 27 years and are the leaders in this type of edutainment. It has be proven that people learn better through this type of education. Puff and Dee Dee continue to get the most current education to teach the correct messages.

January 2015 AFBEA University Deanna and Val were honored to be brought back to present our Bully Free Show and teach other classes.  At the same time updating and get more new and innovative ideas to teach messages and save lives.
