That night the team will go through a safety briefing as well as prepare for the event. The Fire Team will spend the entire first day of UPW outside preparing for the Firewalk that night. At the end of Day 1, the Fire Team cleans up the Firewalk and secures the equipment for the night. The following morning everything is cleaned thoroughly and packed up for the next event.

Starting Day 3 and continuing through the end of the event, the Fire Team members rejoin the Event Team and take on new Crew roles.

Weather conditions for the event may vary from extreme levels of heat and humidity to constant rain and cold. Regardless of the weather conditions, we need to be ready to do the job so that we can best serve the participants.
