With bounce houses taking flight recently, parents are understandably concerned about how safe their children will be at carnivals and fairs this summer.
There’s an easy way to help ensure your child’s safety on inflatable and carnival rides: See www.Lni.wa.gov/amusementrides. The site includes:
- A list of certified amusement ride operators in the state.
- An amusement ride safety checklist so you know what to look for. For example:
- Making sure the bounce house is securely anchored using steel stakes or sandbags (depending on the ground).
- Ensuring that a ride operator is present and paying attention.
See something that’s a concern? Talk to the event manager and call L&I at 360-902-5570.
