You made it! Your community has come together and you are ready to mark the line. As there will be a lot going on during the day(s) you mark the line, having a checklist will help immensely.

Here are some items to bring:

Permits – Everyone who is marking the line should have a paper copy of the permit on their person.

Contact Information – Each participant should have the cell number for the Line/Volunteer Coordinator and – when appropriate – the cell number for the Media Liaison.

Maps of Route – All people marking the line should have a map of the route on their person to share with the people they interact with.

 

The Line/Volunteer Coordinator should have a sheet with all participant’s cell phone numbers, the Media Liaison’s cell phone number and contact information for the Photographer/Videographer. In addition, if there is a team working to provide materials along the route, the Line/Volunteer Coordinator should have their contact info as well.

The Media Liaison should have a sheet with the contact information of all media spokespeople, as well some physical press packets on their person, as well as the contact information for the Line/Volunteer Coordinator and the Photographer/Videographer.
