'FYI'
PLEASE READ THE SAFETY COMMENT SECTION, IF NOTHING ELSE to fully understand the dangers of any games. IT'S FOR YOU AND YOUR CHILDRENS SAFETY!!!!!!!

SAFETY COMMENTS AND INFORMATION

In the world we all live in today we have games / activities that range from playing cards to the eXtreme GAMES, such as sky boarding, bungee jumping, and diving just to name a few. But one unique fact remains a part of all of these games. We try to be prepared for that emergency that we know can happen (and the odds say will happen). We wear safety gear, learn and practice procedures. We understand what could happen. And when it does happen we hope it is the 'other person', Remember 'it won't happen to me???

UNLESS
YOU ARE THAT PERSON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We have laws that require car seats for our children, bicycle helmets, knee, hand, face, chest, etc proctors. You want to protect your children. SO DO WE!!!!!!!!!!!

FUNDUNK
provides rule signs, either on the units or stand alones for each unit that needs it. FUNDUNK sends type written copies, with the contract, for you to read and make copies of. FUNDUNK goes over the safety rules when we set the games. FUNDUNK provides written rules for the people who are go to be attendants, the people who are going to be in charge, and require that our clients sign a statement that they understands the dangers and safety rules involved in operating these games. FUNDUNK does everything we can to make our games safe, BUT, we cannot control how YOU as the adult/parent/attendant will make the kids obey the rules. If you read them, you will see that most of the rules are nothing more than common sense.

Most people think that inflatable games are just big air pillows and you can't get hurt. THAT IS WRONG. It is a big pillow 'of a sort' but when it is full of air it is tight. That is what gives the bounce. It does not 'give' like a pillow does. If you fall wrong, something will give, and in to many instances it's the body. There have been broken arms, legs, necks, backs, fingers. There have even be deaths and 99.99% could have be prevented by the attendant simply saying 'DON'T DO THAT' and if the person keeps on doing it make them get off the game. If that doesn't work then pull the plug. That will get everyone's attention and normally that activity will stop.

AS AN ATTENDANT OF THESE GAMES , IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO BE VIGILANT AND OBSERVE WHAT IS HAPPINING IN YOUR AREA OF RESPONSIBILITY AT ALL TIMES, (talk to that person you haven't seen for a while. While you look away, bam, it just happened AND SOMEBODY IS HURT!!!). It only takes a split second for someone to get hurt. Injuries generally happen because the rules were not enforced. Because we did not think anything could happen. Remember KIDS HAVE NO FEAR. Fear is a learned behavior that only comes later after we, or someone very close to us, have been hurt.

Remember, we are all here to have fun. Let's not ruin the fun by letting someone get hurt because we can't or won't say 'NO'. Please don't be a parent/volunteer that let's a child get hurt because you won't do the job you agreed to do. If you won't protect the child, by being a parent and an adult, who else will? Is that not also a form of child abuse?? `You are the 'grown up'. Remember it is YOU and YOUR VOLUNTEERS responsibility to safely operate our games.

FUNDUNKS responsibility is to provide the games in good working order, and to make sure they are set up properly. We cannot make your kids follow the rules short of pulling the plug on your event (we will do so if we deem it necessary), but YOU can. Remember, AN INJURY STOPS THE FUN FOR EVERYONE
