    Full description of the concept

    *Public Service Upgrade!*

    We are so excited to announce the return and expansion of the Wandering Rangers! We want to build a Ranger HQ this year so that the Rangers taking care of us and solving our problems can be dry, safe, and warm, as well as well-stocked with multitools, flashlights, walkies, first aid, happiness supplies, and more.

    Rangers volunteer a portion of their time to wander the grounds in pairs, being helpful and of service to the safety and well-being of the community. They act as non-confrontational community mediators, providers of reliable information, facilitators of public safety, and navigators of the edge of chaos. They encourage self reliance, individual accountability, and shared responsibility. They solve problems, armed with response training, COMMs channels, safety bags, and a water gun for the bad boys and girls. At any time day or night you will find pairs of Rangers engaging with the community, participating on dancefloors, experiencing art projects, and offering help or alerting security and medical when needed.

    BASIC SUPPLIES: 200 tokens
    We will be able to outfit the Ranger team with 8 Hats, walkie talkies, and shiny Ranger GürtelTaschen. We will fill the bags with enough supplies to replenish 72 shifts of support:
    * maps and info
    * basic first aid,
    * Flashlight
    * extra water bottles,
    * snacks,
    * bubbles, condoms
    * menstruation pads, TP, moist unscented wipes
    * tampons for bloody noses
    * glucose or hard candy
    * hangover vitamins
    * trash bags
    (add more ideas! https://talk.kiezburn.org/d/r7ESy16J/wonderers-rangers- )

    RANGER STATION: 300 tokens
    We will be able to fund the construction of a Ranger Station! The Ranger Station will be open 24/hr every day of kiez burn and be a safe, warm, dry place to hold Ranger meetings, charge walkies, switch shifts, change clothes, fill up supplies and malweather gear, safely store supplies while on shift, and check in for COMMs.

    ALL RANGER SUPPLIES: 500 tokens
    We can supply each of the Rangers with a camelback for 'hydration while solving things', we can give them ponchos for bad weather, a multitool for everything, and a water gun to help facilitate solving things, and a few other useful tools that we can use again next year, including:
    * Ponchos
    * Multitool
    * Water Guns
    * Camelback
