Fountain Life Guard Service

DOES YOUR TOWN HAVE A FOUNTAIN? IF SO, YOU NEED
The Fountain Life Guard Service (FLaGS)
Brought to you this summer by THE PUBLIC SERVICE

NZ Fringe 2014 Feb 7,8,21,22,28 & Mar 1 at 12pm at various water features around Wellington!

The maker of Echolalia, Perceiving Murder and The Ghosts’ Soiree, Jen McArthur gathers a gaggle of Wellington’s finest comic performers for some hilarious antics on the streets of Wellington for the 2014 NZ Fringe Festival.

New Zealand’s pre eminent Service in fountain or water feature based life-preserving techniques, the Fountain Life Guards are a must for any inner city watery situation. From the BAM (Birdpoo Avoidance Manouvre) to the FBS (Floating Bandaid Situation), the FLaGS are the Big League in Dominating Danger. Never again do you need to worry about rips, sharks or pirates in your local urban area. The FLaGS are fervent about civic health and safety, and are on hand to give advice and perform mouth to mouth when needed. (They can’t save you from laughter however.) So for those who prefer “just a little dip” the Fountain Life Guard Service is here!

The Fountain Life Guards will be patrolling various different water features around Wellington and Lower Hutt during the month of February. To find out where and when the FLaGS might be spotted, check the fringe website http://www.fringe.co.nz (info will be posted end of January) or the FaceBook page The Public Service.
