MEAT volunteers provide first aid/first response. Their primary role is to provide non-invasive first aid, though they can respond in a life-threatening emergency while Rangers call 911 and facilitate transfer to a higher level of care. MEAT Volunteers need to have a current CPR card. CPR training will be offered prior to the event for those interested in volunteering for MEAT.
Another volunteer role in this area is the MEAT Tender: a volunteer who serves as an assistant to the MEAT on shift; greets and logs in participants coming to the medical area; and helps with supplies. These volunteers do not require CPR training.
Rehab: this is a 4-5 hour shift that assists only the Fire Team on burn nights as they come off the fire. We will need 2 participants to help with rehab, and document, and offer clearance to return from the fire or go back into the fire zone.

Sanctuary is a safe, comfortable and private space for participants who need a caring listener or low stimulus environment. It is preferred that Sanctuary volunteers have attended at least one burn, but it is not a necessity. Get all your info at the Myschievia Sanctuary Website here.

Although previous firefighting experience is not necessary, volunteers must be willing to stay focused and attentive during this portion of the event.
