Wandering Rangers are participants at Kiez Burn who volunteer a portion of their time in service of the safety and well-being of the community. They act as non-confrontational community mediators, providers of reliable information, facilitators of public safety, and navigators of the edge of chaos. They encourage self reliance, individual accountability, and shared responsibility. They mediate situations involving citizens, the organization, or cooperating agencies. When circumstances dictate, they act to uphold the principles of our community.
Day or night, pairs of Rangers can be found engaging with the community, enjoying the art, and always ready to help sort things out.
This is a sober shift!

We're so excited to announce Wandering Rangers this year is open for volunteers!
Wandering Rangers are Kiez Burners who take a turn walking the grounds and being helpful and of service to the safety and well-being of the community. They act as non-confrontational community mediators, providers of reliable information, facilitators of public safety, and navigators of the edge of chaos. They encourage self reliance, individual accountability, and shared responsibility.
At any time day or night you will find two pairs of Rangers checking on dancefloors and art projects, getting the pulse of the event for HQ and offering help or alerting security and medical when needed. Wanders are for 4 hours and always with a partner, and sober. There will be a short introduction and prep meeting at the start of kiez burn to guide you. You can sign up for just one Wander, or a few, its up to you. We will be filling 72 available slots with burners from all sorts of backgrounds, Join the team!

If we really have double as many participants this year, we should double up the rangers, too

Would also be willing to do more then one shift, last year it was pretty nice ;)

Based on last year's experience I'd suggest 1 pair at daytime (except maybe on the 1st day) and 2 pairs at night. There was really not much to do for wonderers, especially during the day. Quite a few volunteers voiced they felt underutilized and would rather have spent their volunteering time on something they felt needed more. We should keep in mind that there are many other functions at Kiez Burn that also need volunteers... At night there was more to do, also we had most no-shows at night...

- PONCHOS! for the rain.
- As snacks, something like chocolate and "dextro energy" are cool things.
- As for the manual, I don't see the need of carrying it around. I would rather encourage having learned it before hand, attend the "compulsory" training and keep a pair of copies at the HQ. Something in between could be having like a short version of it, a list of the most important things written in a single (A4) piece of paper.
- Water guns are fun :)
