Do We Need Training Before We Can Firewalk?

Yes. 100% you will need training before you can firewalk, and also you will need to sign a waiver too. My personal preference is for half a day’s training (going into the evening), which works very well for small, tight knit groups with a single focus. For broader charity style events, the ninety minutes between lighting the fire and walking the fire is a perfect length for the training.

We live in an over-connected world and people tend to decline or ignore many incoming messages. But you MUST be in touch with your firewalkers. We have found three tools to be most effective.

The team photos will look great, and every single image that makes it to social media will be branded with your artwork and message. Walkers LOVE them too, it’s a really cool memento of the day…
