Who are the BC Rangers?

They are your friends and peers. You may know one already. They’re like Scouts for Burners.

What do BC Rangers do?

The Rangers are dedicated to ensuring event participants are safe and having a good time. This involves a wide range of activities such as:

  • Non-violent communication to de-escalate volatile interactions (e.g. conflict resolution)
  • Promoting venue-specific codes of conduct
  • Encouraging participants to respect the 10 principles of Burning Man
  • Part of the First Responder team to any emergency situation
  • Peer Support for participants in crisis (emotional, mental, physical).
  • An easily identifiable resource (“Where are the portos?” “Do you know where the Treehouse is?”)

Why do BC Rangers Do it?

1. Rangering is an excellent way to participate! Get to know your fellow burners, get to see more art, theme camps and collaborators at events!

2. Develop skills to help people in a variety of situations

3. Carry responsibility towards your experience and your community
