Q: What is ORP's policy regarding community safety issues, such as harassment or assault?
A: Every member is expected to conduct themselves with honour, respect, compassion and in a responsible manner while at the Solstice Gathering, following the principles of PLUR -- peace, love, unity, respect, and responsibility. We are here to have fun, but let that not be at the cost of someone else's enjoyment. Any kind of violence or abuse (physical, sexual, verbal or emotional) will not be tolerated, and members will be asked to leave if their actions are deemed inappropriate by the event organizers. We all want to have fun and if you are not having fun because of another member, please bring it to the attention of a coordinator (someone with a walkie talkie), Vibe Patrol, or go to Health and Safety. Be responsible and take care of yourselves and your campmates.
Q: What do I do in case of an Emergency?
A: There are walkie talkies at various community locations, including all of the stages, the Kitchen, and Centre Camp. Look for the lit up booths. Turn the walkie on, press down, then speak. This will put you in contact a coordinator or response shift worker immediately. There are also EMRs located near Centre Camp (across the path from Family Camp), the VIBE team (easy to spot by their reflective sashes), and Security (at the Gate and roaming the site) - all of these teams are available to assist you, and will have walkie talkies as well.
