Paul Festival requesting Security and medical personnel in Tampa 2012

Howdy folks, the last call went out to the Marshals of '08. Kinda give them an advance heads up.

Well now it's your turn! Hooray!

Experience in the military, police, fire or EMS services is not necessary. You have to be able bodied and willing to pull together with the team. We have a proven training process that goes through things in hair-fine detail. It's a great experience. We absolutely need you.

You get to learn radio protocols and de-escalation and non violent conflict resolution and a bit about emergency medicine and crowd management and all kinds of things! And when the job is done you walk with a t-shirt that nobody else has. Which you can wear to Dr. Paul's speech on Sunday, the Ronvoys are getting ready to move the show but....you might wanna wash it quick and let it dry.

We're gonna be some stinky t-shirt people by the time this is done but don't let that discourage you!

And let's be clear about this: this isn't some violent trip, this is positive, constructive and productive energy! Haters of any type need not apply.

Hop right on over here:

And choose security or one of the many other jobs that might suit you. Although security is possibly the coolest.

The real coolest is to be a medic. For that you need a current First Responder or above certification. I'd love to have an ER Doc for a Medical Director. Do we have one of those?

Hope to hear from you all soon!

Point of clarification

I have an objection about saying medics are cooler than security officers. They are both cool.

I will describe a bit about the chain of authority: security officers are supposed to make the scene safe and we have authority over who goes where when. BUT if somebody is injured, the Medic has total authority over the care and treatment of the patient.

So if security says "this guy has to go" and medic says "he's having a medical issue and we need to keep him here", Medic over-rules Security for that time and Security helps Medic with whatever they need to care for the patient.

Which is cooler? Only one way to find out. BE A VOLUNTEER!

One trade off: you kinda give up being a spectator

One person I spoke to said he would volunteer but he really wants to watch the show and have a good time.

That's cool, nothing wrong with that but you can't really do both. If you are working security/medical you might be posted where you can't even see a stage. And if you can see the stage, you want to have your eyes roving and your senses alert.

So that's a trade off. But consider this: most of these speakers and acts can be seen elsewhere, live or on Youtube. You only get this one chance in your whole life to be a medic or security officer at Paul Festival 2012!

And then you aren't a spectator, you are an active participant. You are one of the ones providing these fun and enjoyable days to your brothers and sisters of the movement.

So one is not right and the other wrong, both ways are right. As an attendee or as a volunteer you really can't go wrong. Either way you win!
