InterRangers are participants empowered by the community and the MWB leadership to serve as first responders, information conduits, and non-violent mediators. InterRangers work with all participants, as well as emergency services, to solve public safety challenges at MWB events.
InterRangers encourage a community of shared responsibility & only assist the community when needed to help our fellow participants find solutions. The InterRangers’ primary concern is the safety of people, not property. Our success comes from the fact that we are not an outside group: we are the participants, and work throughout the event to further the collective survival of the community. We are here to facilitate participants’ fun in a safe way. Additionally, we require you work your shift sober.
Modeled after the Black Rock Rangers for Burning Man, InterRangers practice the Art of Rangering, using non-confrontational communication whenever possible to encourage cooperation, help participants remember their obligation to each other, and help create a safe environment. As first responders and safety coordinators, Firefighters, and Crisis Intervention Specialists in our ranks.
We can be reached 24 hours a day at our HQ, by radio, or you can find us strolling around in our stylish green InterRanger shirts. InterRangers collaborate with Medical & Sanctuary to form the Emergency Services Infrastructure at InterFuse.
