What We Do
Our mission is to protect the people, their possessions, and their movement. That means ensuring the health & safety of attendees and volunteers alike, protecting legitimate vendors from theft and unauthorized sales, and preventing mishaps before they occur. During the off-season, we conduct quarterly training sessions on situation response, deescalation techniques, radio protocol, and more.
- Too much fun? We’ll summon First Aid.
- Lost child? We’ll locate their parents.
- Menacing vibes? We can help.
We’re looking for volunteers who can present a calm, professional appearance while acting for the greater good. We are especially interested in people with backgrounds in:
- Public safety
- Event security
- First aid
- Using a radio
We also need volunteers for our night safety crew. (Coffee provided free!)
If you’d like to help out, email us at safetypatrol at hempfest.org. This is an internal crew, so you’ll need a password before you can volunteer for shifts. Please note that power trips are strictly forbidden.
Thanks for reading. Remember to apply sunblock, drink lots of water, and above all, enjoy the fest!
