Emergencies can arise for various reasons. The following are a few examples of emergencies and how they can be handled. This is strictly a guide…please use common sense when an emergency occurs.
Bad weather can arrive in the form of rain, lightning or strong wind. In each case you want to evacuate the ride as quickly and safely as possible.
- 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 blowers or fans.
- Mazes should be folded and taken to a protected area out of the weather. Bouncers should be folded over once and covered with the ground sheet so that the interior is protected from the weather.

Should the unit begin to deflate: Remain calm! Proceed to the entrance of the bouncer and help the children exit from the unit.

Do not used any more than a total of 100 feet of heavy extension cord (stronger outlets are in the kitchen and laundry room), 2) if the motor is continuing to run, check the air intake on the side of the motor for blockage, and check both tubes at the back of the unit for snugness: re-tie if necessary, or 3) If you can not correct the problem call Grand River Inflatables & Games Inc. at (519) 957-9731.
