The Rangers are looking for some awesome people

If you've been to Seed before, you may have seen people walking around in orange. They're not just burners in costume - they're our rangers, and they're a vital part of Burning Seed.
Rangers have a very important role on site and contribute to the smooth running fo the event. They are not the police, they're participants like yourself who have decided to be sober and responsible for a few hours and walk around to help out other community members. With access to walkie talkies, training and a kick-ass cadre of seasoned veteran burners supporting them, Rangers volunteer their time to make sure that people are empowered when their radical self reliance runs out. This doesn't mean that they stop people from having fun; rather, they might point out the ways that that spiky bar could hurt you, and then call the medics if your long jump doesn't go as planned. You'll often see them dancing their butts off to a great set at a theme camp, but they'll also check in to make sure that person in the corner is choosing to sleep instead of passing out.
If you're in trouble on the paddock, the Rangers are a great first resource - they're good for helping find lost children, they can help mediate disputes and many are very good huggers if they're asked to provide one. Consent is still required though, so please don't just go jumping on them expecting they'll love it!
Ranger Training
Rangers learn to be so awesome through their training which happens pre-burn off-paddock, or on the first day of Seed for people who don't live in major cities or missed out on the pre-burn events. Training covers what to do in a variety of situations and returning rangers often help mentor newer rangers to provide even more range of experience. At training you will learn how to use radio protocols, how to approach a situation without inflaming it and also get the opportunity to hold the perimeter during burns. Burns can't happen without a safe perimeter, so rangers are CRUCIAL for one of the most fun and important parts of the event!
Burning Seed has one of the highest ratios of participants that have gone through ranger training of any burn in the world, which is something to be proud of. Ranger training is useful both for Seed and outside of Seed, and many participants have reported that their ranger training helped them out in sticky situations in the default world as well.
Why and how to get involved!

FART SEEKS FIRE SAFETY CREW

Where there’s smoke, there’s fire.

And where there’s fire, there’s a bunch of smokin’ hot firefighters. And one of them could be you!

The Fire Art Response Team is still seeking 20 more crew members for Burning Seed 2019.

It’s no secret we love to burn shit, and in order to burn shit it’s crucial we have a competent team of burners who will be prepared to show up and be on the ready should any emergencies occur. You don’t even need experience… you’ll get all the training you need on site, and if you’re a novice, you’ll be paired with a veteran at all times. Your protective gear will be provided, and you’ll get to dress up like the sexy kitten-rescuing calendar stripper you’ve always wanted to be.

Meow!

You’ll do one non-burn shift where you’ll be responsible for raising fire safety awareness, as well as patrolling two of the three burns during the event. Sobriety for your shifts and your own safety boots are the only prerequisites.

We need at least 20 crew members, and you’ll be greeted with particular enthusiasm if you’ve got firefighting experience or you’ve FARTed at Burns past.  If you’re keen, feel free to head straight over to the website and apply.
