Regional Ranger Training

Next Ranger Training June 9th !!

Please sign up if you want to reserve a spot. Send an email to rangers@andrewmartens.com

To sign up for a Ranger shift at Burn in the Forest, go here: http://burnintheforest.com/volunteeroptions/ranger-sign-up/

With Burn in the Forest around the corner our second Ranger training is on the horizon. This is an excellent and very important way to contribute. If you’ve ever thought of being involved as a Ranger, then come out to the training on Saturday April 27th and join the team!
Venue TBA
Time 12 noon – 5pm

We will cover conflict resolution, active listening, communication, rangering, and peer support.

Wrangler 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. So you can see how important it is to get as many people trained as possible.

We are combining peer support into our Ranger team so if you would like to be one of our peer support Rangers you will need to do the Ranger Training.

It is important to note that this is a Regional Training not an official Burning Man Training. This will allow you to Ranger at any of the Regional Events in and around BC.

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. It is an afternoon full of great discussion and great company !
We need you to RSVP so we know numbers. Send an email to Andrew through rangers@andrewmartens.com

Best wishes
