Basic Tent Safety
Okay, so you’ve got your tent all set up and you’re ready to get the party going. If you want to keep yourself and your guests safe, and of course, get your security deposit back, then you’re going to want to keep the following safety tips in mind.
Tents Aren’t Fire-Proof
Big T Tent rental Kansas City, MO are made of durable, fire retardant materials, but fire retardant and fire-proof are not exactly the same thing. Generally speaking, these tents are not highly flammable, they’re not a high risk factor around open flame, but nevertheless, they can catch fire, and it’s best to play it safe on this front and keep all fires outside of the tent. Even a large tent can fill up with smoke rather easily, so it’s a good idea to do any cooking outside of the tent even as you dine inside. For this reason, rainy days aren’t always the best time to hold a barbecue.
When Renting, Let the Supplier Set Up and Tear Down
The price quotes at Big T Tents include everything from the price of the tent to setting it up to tearing it down at the end of the party. If you don’t know how to set a tent up, you can likely injure yourself and strain yourself trying to do it, so let the experts handle the tent itself while you handle the party.
Cover Your Bases
The Big T Tents staff will set the tent up, but it’s the customer’s responsibility to make sure that they’re setting up in the right place. Before even calling Big T, make sure that you have the right to set up where you’re setting up, that there are no pipes or wiring underground and that you can get ahold of any permits that may be required to set up in that particular spot. Making sure that everything is legal and totally on the up and up is really the most important preliminary step, so give Dig Rite and make sure that you’ve got the go-ahead.
Don’t Risk the Weather
Tents provide shelter, that’s the reason they were invented, but you should be willing to swallow your pride and pack it in when those clouds start to look a little too threatening. In a heavy thunderstorm, a tent pole is like a big thunder rod, and you generally don’t want to be near it if it gets struck. Play it safe and check the weather reports well before the day that your event is supposed to take place. There’s no point setting up a whole party and then having to pack it in due to weather, so check the reports beforehand. These tents can hold up to a little rain, but you don’t want your event to coincide with a storm.
The truth is that the tents at Big T are pretty safe and durable. They don’t have any real risk of falling over or leaking severely or spontaneously combusting, so as long as you exercise a little common sense, you should be able to enjoy a safe, fun gathering at your next event.
