STATE POLICE TO CONDUCT SAFETY INSPECTION OF AMUSEMENT RIDES
 

PHOTO OPP: Inspection at Lake Compounce Thursday, May 1; 10:30 a.m.

 

     The Connecticut State Police Fire & Explosion Investigation Unit, working with the Department of Consumer Protection and with the cooperation of the Lake Compounce Family Theme Park, will conduct the annual inspection of all of the mechanical amusement rides at the park.

 

     On Thursday May 1, 2014, Connecticut State Troopers assigned to the Fire & Explosion Investigation Unit will be conducting their annual ride inspections of the mechanical amusement rides and devices at Lake Compounce in Bristol, CT.  The process will begin at 10:30 AM. 

 

     This process takes place each year prior to the park opening to the public.  During the amusment ride season, Troopers also inspect every portable amusement company’s ride equipement.  These rides are examined each and every time a ride is assembled at a new site prior to that  ride opening to the public. 

 

     On May 1, 2014, the media is invited to come to Lake Compounce Family Theme Park  to observe the entire ride inspection process. 

 

     DESPP  Commissioner Dora B. Schriro said,  “Our Troopers will be conducting their annual inspection of all of the rides at the Theme Park prior to its opening as well as at the state’s other amusement parks and fairs and festivals throughout the season. Their good work will help to keep everyone safe as they enjoy these rides throughout the warm weather months.”
