THE MISSION: Our Mission is to manage the Parking Lots and roadways on site and at one overflow off site Parking lot on Landry Ave.

The Day Shift will start at 11AM and end at 5:30PM. The Night Shift will start at 5:00PM and end at 11:00PM or earlier if traffic warrants it.
There will be meal tickets provided by the Committee for a meal half way through your shift and breaks (Hydration) will be provided as needed.

Our Mission is to manage the on campus Parking Lots, Accessible Parking and assist the Police with Pedestrian safety both before, during and after the Event and Fireworks. After the Fireworks we will assist the Police Detail in safely getting cars from the Parking Lots to the Street and make sure that Pedestrians and Cars don’t mix. We will also be responsible for starting and maintaining the several light towers and Message Boards scattered throughout the Campus.

We recognize that this is a long duration event but would appreciate what ever time you can give us. It is suggested that if a specific Team could do a Day or Shift or two that would work best. If you have mobility issues we can put you where you are not on your feet (Volunteer Registration Booth, Command Post  etc) or bring a lawn chair.

Please email  scott.bumpus@nafirefighterskidsday.org ASAP to give us the time shift you can work and the organization that you belong to, so that we may start plugging people into ICS positions.
