At the Effigy and Temple burns, we take special safety precautions to make sure our participants and the firefighters who help us with our burns are safe. DO NOT CROSS THE BURN PERIMETER! It is clearly marked out around each big burn and patrolled by volunteers and firefighters to ensure people stay safely behind the line until the structure has fallen and the fire is at a point where it can be more safely approached. Anyone who deliberately crosses the perimeter before it has dropped is putting our firefighters and perimeter guards at risk. Doing so may result in instant expulsion from the event.
