Welcome to all things Safety for FreezerBurn 2022! If you have questions or feedback about a safety-related issue (fire, medical, event perimeter, rangers, sanctuary, or sound marshals) you are in the right place. You can also email the Safety AF.
Registration for Hypothermia (Dec. 3-5) is now open! Hypothermia has been the interdepartmental Safety Training for FreezerBurn. Many Safety departments require training in order to volunteer. While this event’s primary objective is to facilitate those Safety Trainings, this year we hope to provide relevant trainings from the other volunteer teams and departments that make this event possible. Register by Oct. 31 at bit.ly/FZB22hypo.
Fire Frost City Safety Departments
FreezerBurn Emergency Team (FETS): FETS provides volunteer medical support through the Station Medic and Mobile Medic teams. The Station Medic team serves walk-in patients at the first aid station and responds to participants in need. The Mobile Medic team volunteers have more advanced trauma training and are on-call for emergencies. FETS has a role for EVERYONE – including volunteers with no medical training or experience.
This department is available for questions and assistance regarding camp fires, burnable art, and burn night/ effigy burn. Don’t be surprised if one of your friendly fire team members stops by to safety check your fire ring.
The area surrounding FreezerBurn event land is monitored by volunteers to ensure the safety and privacy of event participants from gate crashers. Guardians watch the outside so we can enjoy the inside.
Rangers aren’t cops and they don’t tell other participants how to experience their burn. Instead, they are a source of event information, facilitate solutions for participants, and generally just provide a helping hand when needed.
If a participant is having a difficult experience (camp stress, non-consensual interactions, or general overwhelm), a Sanctuary volunteer can provide active listening and peer support. All Sanctuary interactions are anonymous.
Sound Marshals enforce city sound ordinance using decibel meters and assist with sound camp and sound system placement.
