And Finally…
 

Please keep in mind that your safety is our primary concern.  Remember the following important safety tips:

 

  • Uniformed Security Personnel are there to help. Follow all instructions from Uniformed Security Personnel.
  • Very few things on our flight line are soft to the touch. Most things are made of metal and have lots of edges on them. Keep your eyes focused in the direction you’re walking and be aware of low-hanging (and flying!) aircraft components.
  • Medical personnel are on call to render assistance to anyone that requires it. Notify any Uniformed Security Personnel or Air Show worker if you or any member of your group requires medical attention.
  • Pay attention! Watch where you are walking. Trip hazards are everywhere. Stay aware of your surroundings and watch for moving vehicles.
  • Drink water…stay hydrated. Water will be available throughout the Airshow Area.  If you are drinking alcohol, please drink in moderation, as alcohol can cause dehydration. Do not rely on sugary drinks for hydration.
  • Plan for noise. Jets can make lots of noise, so we strongly suggest bringing earplugs or ear protection – especially for the little ones.
  • Plan Ahead.
    • Find out where you can get medical aid or seek assistance, if you need it.
    • If you are in a group and you get separated, where will you meet?  
    • If you have children with you, make sure they know how to get help if they get lost. Please stop by the information booth if you have children.
  • We will make every attempt to lessen delays while entering or leaving the Air Show.
