Event Emergency Information | ChicagoMoonwalks.com Chicago IL.

Emergencies can arise for various reasons. The following are a few examples of emergencies and how they should be handled. This is strictly a guide. Please use common sense when an emergency occurs.

Loss of Electrical Power: When a loss of power occurs, the inflatable will slowly start to deflate.

Remain Calm! You will have sufficient time to help the riders to quickly and safely exit the ride. This situation tends to cause panic . . . unless the operator stays calm and relaxed. Talk calmly to those inside telling them not to panic while you are helping them walk out.

Check to see if the blowers have come unplugged or the cords are unplugged from the outlet. If so, plug them back in and the ride will re-inflate. Do not leave the ride unattended to check on any problem. Empty the ride and then address the issue.

If the bounce house deflates and entrance is not found, please advise the children not to panic, to find the square on the roof, push it out and exit the bounce house.

Weather: Bad weather can arrive in the form of rain, lightning or strong wind. The bounce house or inflatable should not be operated if winds exceed 20 miles per hour or in rain or lightning conditions. In each case you must evacuate the ride as quickly and as safely as possible. Once everyone has exited the ride, deflate the inflatable by turning off the blower. Once the inflatable is completely deflated it should be folded over once to protect the interior from the weather.

Remain Calm! If you panic, your riders may also panic. Stay calm and stay focused on your job, which is to help your riders exit the ride quickly, but in an orderly fashion. After everyone has exited the ride, deflate the ride by turning off the blower and moving them to a dry location.

Damage: If the ride becomes damaged while in your operation, take the following steps: If the ride ripped or otherwise begins to lose air, assist all riders from the ride and deflate it. Write down what happened, when, and any other details you observed and turn this report in to ChicagoMoonWalks.

Should the bounce house deflate, or if you experienced any other problems with the equipment, please call or page the ChicagoMoonWalks representative at the following phone 312-330-0925 before allowing or engaging in further use of the bounce house.

Do not leave the ride unattended!
