Seeking: People who like staying warm by fires and helping their community stay safe
You may have heard that we burn stuff at Constellation. In order to safely burn stuff in a crowd of hundreds we need a safety perimeter around the fire. We choose to make that perimeter out of burners!
What this shift requires of you:
- Showing up at 7pm before the burn for a training session
- Standing for the length of the burn
- Patience with your fellow enthusiastic burners
What you should consider bringing with you:
- Long sleeved cotton shirt and pants (no synthetic clothing)
- A full water bottle
- A big voice
The shift end time is just an estimate. The shift ends when the burn ends. The end of the shift is dependent upon the judgment of the Perimeter and Fire Safety leads.
Because this department requires a large number of volunteers in the same period of time, we have broken the signup sheet up into smaller squads, for easier eyeball scanning. This may give you the impression that one squad (Code Name: HELL MOUSE) will be off doing things on their own all night, and not working with everyone else (like squads STAR QUAIL and GHOST PUG) but that is not the cases. Squad designations are just there to make the paperwork easier on our end; perimeter is a single unit that can never, ever be separated.
