Safecast Volunteers & Affiliation

SAFECAST is a volunteer-based project, and some confusion may arise as to who is involved with or can speak on behalf of the organization. Please note, “SAFECAST” is a registered trademark and can not be used without permission. Opinions of volunteers are theirs alone, and do not reflect the opinions or mission of SAFECAST.

The SAFECAST team is distributed around the world, with volunteers helping out on almost every level.

SAFECAST data collection volunteers, also known as “Safecasters,” fall into two categories: those who own their own devices, such as ones they’ve built from a bGeigie Nano kit, and those who are loaned SAFECAST measurement devices to use. All volunteers are able to take readings and upload the data to the SAFECAST database. No-one is paid for taking readings, and SAFECAST-owned devices must be returned upon request, such as for maintenance or because they are needed elsewhere.

The organizational leads and core volunteers can be seen on our team page.
