BURner Safety & health
Modifyre is committed to providing and maintaining a safe and healthy environment for all participants at the event. Our Medics, Rangers, and Fire Safety teams are participants just like you, and we're trained to make sure everyone has a great time.
The ModSquad Rangers are Modifyre volunteers who can help you find solutions to problems that you can’t immediately resolve yourself. Rangers help preserve community welfare, safety and quality of experience and uphold the 12 Principles of Modifyre. Empathic surfers on the edge of chaos, Rangers rise out of the dust when needed and recede when things can be left on their own. Available 24/7 to support our community, Ranger HQ is with the medics in our town centre and is clearly marked on the map.
ON SITE FIRST AID
Whilst out on the paddock at Modifyre, we all value our civic responsibilities in keeping ourselves and each other out of harm's way. Though of course, things don't always go to plan; accidents happen, and sometimes we hurt ourselves.
The medics tent will be situated in centre camp and will be there to assist with any first aid issues that may arise. Your fearless team of aid providing angels will be on hand at any stage should you need them and will be more than happy to get you on the mend.
Do you have a first aid certificate and want to be part of the team at Modifyre? Our medics are all fellow volunteers and we are always looking for people wanting to help out. If you think getting involved is something you could see yourself doing, let us know over at out our volunteers registration page!
