2015 Safety Manual

**Blog Date: **Wednesday, November 5, 2014 - 11:54

**Safety, Safety, Safety
As you prepare for the season, please keep safety in mind. The new safety manual for 2015 has just been posted. You can check it out here](http://www.usfirst.org/roboticsprograms/frc/safety-video-and-manual). All teams should read and follow this manual. We’ve made a few tweaks from last year, including some changes to footwear requirements at events, specifically for spectators. We’re trying to strike a balance between keeping spectators wanting to visit the pits safe, and making sure they get to see all the great things you guys are doing. See the updated manual for details.

A 10 Foot Tall Guitar and FIRST

What does a 10 foot tall guitar have to do with FIRST? FRC Team 2283, Panteras, from Mexico City, Mexico, programmed a robot to autonomously paint a giant guitar as part of the GuitarTown public arts project. The design incorporated a printed circuit, a gear, and the familiar triangle, circle and square of the *FIRST *logo. Check out the video here](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cU5ufVMVgjk&list=UUPyVs8uikeRL00UNV66Vqkg).

Nice work, Panteras!

Much better then the old one. Still a few hole’s to work on or for some an opportunity to argue.

Aye. Although the folks that don’t like safety advisors telling teams to YELL “ROBOT!” now have some extra help: The safety manual specifies politely telling pedestrians to move, not yelling and hoping they get out of the way.
