At our place, the following:
Range Saefty comes out two minutes prior to a cease fire and announces as such.
Range Safety accounces cease fire, open all actions, place weapons on safe, and step back behind the firing line. The range is now cold.
When the line is clear, they announce it is safe to go down range and change out targets and clean up brass.
After about 5-8 mins, when the range is clear, the range goes hot again and firing commences.
This loop is reapeated every 20-30 mins.
