About the Ranger Team:
Rangers are participants, first and foremost. They have no authority, rather only a concern for the safety and welfare of others that leads them to be available if others need help. Rangers wear distinctive shirts and can be found walking around the burn, being a community resource for anyone who asks for our assistance. They're often asked to help burners with conflict resolution, or providing information. They also play a role in safety; if someone is injured, they will assist with escorting medical personnel to where they need to go, or be present if someone feels unsafe at a given moment. A few experienced Rangers fill the role of “Khaki”, who stays at Ranger HQ and coordinates the Rangers that are walking around. Other Ranger duties include:
Ranger Team Lead Expectations:
- Develop a plan to address Ranger coverage for the entire event, including volunteer levels needed.
- Work under the EMS lead and assist where needed
- Assist the Ranger Training Coordinator in conducting on and off-site trainings.
- Attend EMS Department Meetings to help maintain and update emergency response standard operating procedures.
- Work with EMS, Fire Safety, Effigy, and Conclave teams to develop effigy burn plans
- Set the Rangers up with something to wear that will help them be identified while on duty.
- Continue developing a team identity for Rangers, and creating a team culture that has been missing.
Basic Team Lead Expectations:
- Attend the first Team Lead meeting on June 7th.
- Attend monthly Team Lead meetings. If you do not live close enough to Atlanta, we require that you have a Co-Lead who can attend.
- Submit a budget for the team.
- Attend build weekend/week if required for your team.
- Set up a volunteer schedule in coordination with the volunteer coordinator.
- Attend the daily Team Lead meetings during the event.

- Complete post-event report submitted 3 weeks after the event.
- Attend Radio training
- Not be scared by all this stuff! We have pretty solid support and resource systems to help you with this, especially if this is your first time leading a team.
