Introduction

Believe it or not, Noisebridge has policies and procedures. They are called "policies and procedures" because that's what every other organization calls them:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Policies_and_procedures </p> <p>All of these policies and procedures exist for a reason. Some are legal requirements. Others are for everybody's safety. Some are just to prevent petty disputes and avoid misunderstandings.

Actually, this isn't quite accurate. Noisebridge does not have policies and procedures except that which is necessary to comply with California and Federal non-profit law. However, a number of customary behaviors which may at first look like policies and procedures have emerged over the several years of Noisebridge's existence. Some of them are below.

Dr. Jesus points out this page of guidelines, which basically serves the same purpose:

  • If you don't know what you're doing and it could threaten anybody's safety (not just yours!), DON'T DO IT!
  • Two complete first aid kits exist - both in the hall across from the kitchen.
  • About 6 working fire extinguishers are scattered throughout the space.
  • The black Cisco phone between the black payphone and red payphone makes outgoing phone calls. Pick up the receiver, dial 9, then the 7-digit phone number.
