Team Lead: Pandacorn
Rangers are the eyes and ears of the burn. Rangers are NOT police or security. At Reclaimation, Rangers often wear several hats including fire safety, sound marshal, burn night perimeter, and occasional weasel wrangler. Although being a Ranger is a big responsibility, it’s also tons of fun. You get to meet virtually everyone and help any participant who may be in need. Rangers work closely with Medic volunteers to keep Singe City healthy and happy. If you have good mediation skills, are a good listener, are able to remain level-headed in stressful situations, and like to help keep the peace, sign up for a Ranger shift or two! Sobriety is required while you are on shift.
What a volunteer should expect:
Lots of walking, lots of chatting, lots of hanging out at every theme camp around. Rangering is arguably one of the best ways to get out there and meet tons of people. You get to walk around checking out theme camps and helping out where needed on a variety of issues. People love having rangers grab a chair and chat with them for a bit before continuing on patrol. Also, you get a radio and get to look all official and stuff, that’s pretty bad ass. Being a ranger means being responsible and being able to assist in potentially tough situations, it’s not a job for everyone but those who do ranger often form a very tight knit bunch of people who become great friends.
