When there is a large scale piece of art to burn (typically the Pony on Saturday evening and the Temple and any additional art burns on Sunday evening), you will need to have a perimeter established around the installation to protect participants from potential injury and hazards. That’s where BLiP comes in. We will establish and maintain the appropriate perimeter for the piece until the Fire Team/Fire Fighters give the all clear for participants to circle the fallen piece. Volunteers are required to be sober for these shifts and should report to the burn site one hour prior to burn time to receive instructions. Having a large voice and not being afraid to use it is also extremely helpful. You will need to stand for the duration of the perimeter establishment and the extent of the burn, which can be well over two hours. You may “take a knee” during the actual burn so as not to block the view of those behind you, but must be ready at any time to move and stop any wandering participants that cross the established perimeter line.
