The Burn Perimeter Team is responsible for creating and maintaining a safe boundary around the perimeter of all burnable art installations. The team is composed of volunteers who are responsible for ensuring that no one enters the perimeter of the burn while the fire is burning. They also maintain communication with other event staff and emergency services to quickly respond to any incidents that may occur during the burn.
