Seek community input before restricting fire performance art in Seattle

This petition made change with 1,404 supporters!


My name is Hayden. I am 9 years old and I regularly spin fire poi within the City of Seattle.

I created this petition with the help of my parents because the City has proposed an Administrative Rule to regulate Fire Performance Art in Seattle.

If adopted, among other restrictions, these rules would prevent me from spinning fire poi on public or private property in Seattle for the next ~7 years (until I'm 16).

While some regulations may be necessary, as proposed, these rules would effectively end the Fire Performance Arts community in Seattle as it exists today.

Key concerns that need community input include, but are not limited to:

  1. Age restrictions (i.e. all children should be able to participate w/parental consent)
  2. Permitting requirements
  3. Insurance requirements
  4. Fuel restrictions
  5. Clothing restrictions

Please sign this petition to urge the City of Seattle (Rich Richardson - Senior Fire Protection Engineer) to seek the input of the Fire Performance Arts community before adopting any new regulations that impact it.
