What do Rangers do?

Among their many duties, Rangers:

  • Provide outreach and education to help burners acculturate.n
  • Act as an information resource to the community.
  • Respond to emergencies and help get the appropriate resources to the scene.
  • Reunite lost children with their family.
  • Help disoriented participants get back to their camp mates.
  • Listen to participants who are having a particularly rough day.
  • Facilitate problem solving, mediation, and conflict resolution (without telling people what to do).
  • Build rapport with fellow Burners as participants and integral members of the community.

Ranger training consists of lectures, discussions, activities, and scenarios covering topics such as communications, conflict resolution, radio usage, and other skills that will give you the basics you’ll need to be a Ranger.
