The following steps will be necessary to request IP address from Packet, make them assignable in, and provision a jail with the public IPs:

With the steps shown in this tutorial you will be able to create a range of IPs that are shared among multiple Packet servers. To add additional servers that will share the same range of IPs repeat steps 4 & 5 as necessary.
