Beyond the operational based assistance we provide our members, EPA is community driven. Meaning, business leaders are able to connect with others via local chapters . Thus, creating mutually beneficial relationships with others in the amusement and event industries.
The EPA is also allocating its resources toward public education. We are helping the public understand amusement devices are safe when used within proper safety and operational guidelines. As the leading trade association for rock climbing rentals and other amusement device owner/operators, the EPA offers exclusive safety training and operational guidelines to minimize risk and insurance, should an accident happen. To date, approximately 99% of all EPA carnival rental games and other amusement members are insured and operating utilizing industry recognized safety guidelines. We want the public to know they can hire an EPA member with confidence!
