A professionally trained Fire Safety Technician and Certified NYC Fire Guard is always on site to assist with the show.
Each tool is thoroughly inspected before each use for any flaws or loose connections, ensuring that they are safe to perform with. If any issues are found, they are either corrected, or another prop is chosen to replace it. Each wick is squeezed out after fueling to reduce excess fuel. By doing this, it eliminates any fuel drip or spin off spray.
Sasha uses a double bucket fueling station which ensures safe and foolproof fueling and fuel storage. Sasha only uses fuels appropriate for fire performance and are clean burning with limited smoke and fumes.
A fire extinguisher and no less than three Duvetyne fire retardant blankets are on site.
Sasha can work with your local fire department to acquire any permits that may be necessary to perform at your venue.
Sasha has a Certificate of Education in Fire Safety for the Flow Arts.
