Ranger Training for Vancouver Burner Events

Hello, Vancouver Burning Man community!

With the smashing success of our Regional events for 2012, Burn In The Forest and Afterglow, we’ve decided to get the jump on training more Ranger volunteers for 2013. If you’ve ever thought of being involved asa Ranger, you should come out to one of our training workshops this coming year. The first of these will be held on Saturday, February 9th, 2013. (venue TBA)

We will cover conflict resolution, active listening, communication, rangering, and peer support. Wr
angler did a great job of explaining what we do:
“As a Ranger, you will take responsibility to ensure people are having a good time. Just walk around and check out the action. Our gift is to
mediate conflict using non-violent communication. We are an ambassador for the event and a source of information. We are the first responders and need to maintain communications within the event.”

As our events get larger and longer we need to build up our team.
For a three day event, we need at least 24-30 Rangers, for a four
day event, we would need over 40 people. That’s a lot of volunteers, and without your help we just won’t have the numbers needed to make sure everyone is safe and having a good time.

We are combining the peer support volunteers into our Ranger team so if you have these skills and interests we need you too, to join the team!

The summer is a long way off, but we all know that it gets harder and harder for people to make time for training as the date of the event draws near. Even if you aren’t sure of your summer plans yet, come on out and get some training on what it is to be a Ranger. Besides, what else are you going to be doing on a rainy February afternoon? Hope to see you there!

Best wishes and happy holidays,
Ranger Andrew
