Peace Patrol/Harm Reduction
PEACE PATROL / HARM REDUCTION
Please note: This position can be challenging at times and is not for everyone.
Proper training and qualifications are a must.
We like to source volunteers with experience or training in harm reduction, whether it be festival-based psychedelic HR or more street-level HR. First-Aid is also a sought-after asset.
• Roving the Festival grounds providing harm reduction services for people who are in the grips of intense experiences
• Attend the Harm Reduction Safety Tent, providing a safe, cozy place
• Communicate with hired security, and on-site medical services, in addition to Festival Staff
• Roam festival grounds and make sure there is no one drinking open alcohol in the streets, obeying the noise bylaw, and directing guests back to their campsites after the venues have closed down.
When somebody ends up in a significantly troubled state, the right volunteer with a combination of knowledge, compassion, and understanding can make the difference between an unresolved crisis and an opportunity for healing and personal growth!
