Bouncer Related Injuries

According to data compiled by Dr. Gary Smith from the Nationwide Children’s Hospital the number of inflatable bouncer related industries rose roughly 1500% from 1995 through 2010. The findings came from records from the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System, which is operated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. In 2010 alone, 31 children on average were treated in emergency departments each day.

So being an inflatable party rental company owner, why am I telling you this? Well it is my belief that these statistics should be displayed on every rental company website. There is a reason the state of Pennsylvania governs our industry. And there is a reason why the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture┬áhas a list of inflatables that can be registered in the state. And there is a reason why they suggest owners of these companies become licensed inflatable inspector and attend the Pennsylvania Amusement Safety Seminar. The reason is simple… safety.

It has never been more obvious than it is today that you, the renter, should make sure that you are dealing with a legit inflatable rental company. Make  sure you are renting from a company who has a certified inspector. Make sure you read over the safety rules and regulations set forth by the company, the state and the manufacturer. Make sure the inflatable you are renting is licensed and registered by the state of Pennsylvania. And most importantly make sure the company you choose is registered. Chances are if they are they are abiding by all rules and regulation set in place by the state.
