Jamcare’s mission is to provide the best care available to attendees of music festivals, other mass gatherings and to the community at large. They specialize in crisis intervention, community support and wellness. Their team of festival savvy EMTs, first-responders and mental health professionals provides compassionate, empathetic and discerning care to music fans. Having them on-site decreases the number of unnecessary medical transports and unwarranted legal involvement, allowing for a more positive experience for everyone involved. Feel free to find Jamcare and have a visit with their non-judgmental crew if you are experiencing any problems throughout the festival.
DanceSafe’s mission is to promote health and safety within the nightlife and electronic music communities. Since 1998, the 501(c)(3) public health organization has provided harm reduction information and services at events to encourage people to make informed decisions. DanceSafe has two fundamental operating principles: harm reduction and peer-based education. Combining these two principles has enabled the organization to create successful, peer-based educational programs to reduce drug misuse and empower young people to make healthy, informed lifestyle choices. DanceSafe neither condones nor condemns drug use. Rather, they provide a non-judgmental perspective to help support people who use drugs in making informed decisions about their health and safety. DanceSafe volunteers staff harm reduction booths at music festivals, raves, nightclubs, and other electronic dance music (EDM) events to ensure positive experiences.
Current Programs and Initiatives Aim to:
- Provide safe spaces to engage in conversations about health, drug use, and personal safety;
- Provide free water and electrolytes to prevent dehydration and heatstroke;
- Provide free safe sex tools to avoid unwanted pregnancies and the spread of STIs;
- Provide free ear plugs to prevent hearing loss;
- Provide honest, fact-based, unbiased information on drug effects and potential harms to empower users to make informed decisions;
- Offer a nonjudgmental first-point of contact to risky or challenging situations;
- Offer drug checking services to prevent overdose and death; and
- Work with promoters and local stakeholders to advocate for safety first approaches.
