Live performances with fire are mesmerizing and other-worldly. To maintain this experience for our clients, fire safety is paramount. Learn more about how we conduct fire performances below.
Our Safety Requirements for booking a Fire Performance:
1. Size of the venue; Must have the ability to create an appropriate perimeter for attendees, the performers, and space our fueling station/equipment. If an inside venue performance is desired, the venue must be inspected and approved for space, ventilation, and other preparations prior to the event.
2. A well-constructed and safe fire performance area must be present with an open, and flat terrain for our performers if outside. Must be able to provide up to 1-2 hours of load in time prior to the event, where applicable, to prepare our stage/perimeter, fueling and safety depot.
3. Fabrics/Clothing for Costuming; It is essential that our performance clothing be made of natural fibers, whether provided by client, third party, or Corners of Creation. (ex: 100% Cotton, Wool, Genuine Leather, Silk are acceptable) but NEVER anything synthetic that will melt and transfer heat easily. (ex: Polyester, Nylon, Model, etc.)
4. Fire Safeties. It is the duty of our trained safeties to observe our performers, the attendees, and environment for any abrupt distractions, as well as prevent unsafe conditions with trained protocol in case of an accident. All safeties will be provided by Corners of Creation only. Safeties will have ABC fire extinguishers on hand, duvetyne fire safety blankets, as well as our other safety equipment.
5. Performer’s Liability Insurance, Permits and/or licenses. All performers carry specialty performer’s insurance policies to ensure additional safety and coverage during fire performances. This information will be provided upon request, and prior to the event for your records. In Ohio, fire performances must be approved in the form of a permit either by the State Fire Marshal, or a Licensed Flame Effects Exhibitor to conduct logistical support. Each state varies, as some states do not have this procedure. This process is discussed upon booking.
