Tucked Safely Under the Tent
Safety is a top priority at Hendersonville Tents Party & Event Rentals. You need to know that when your guests arrive, they can enjoy your wedding reception, holiday party or tent sale without having to worry about a sudden gust of wind or a drunken brother-in-law.
You will feel safe and secure when Hendersonville Tents sets up your tents. Unless a hurricane comes out of nowhere and veers straight into your party, your tent is not going to blow away. And your obnoxious brother-in-law won’t ruin your event, except by being annoying.
Experience Is Invaluable
There are a slew of complicated mathematical equations that go into the proper set-up of an event tent. Because of the variables that go into each placement, it’s wise to use a company with extensive experience to ensure the safety of your guests. Hendersonville Party and & Event Rentals places a top priority on your safety and the safety of your guests – and brings more than 30 years’ experience to every event, an important fact when setting up a big tent in a yard or parking lot.
Tent manufacturers and municipal regulators require tent installers provide holding power that is sufficient to hold your tent in place in your environment, sufficient for the number of guests you expect and for potential weather events. You might feel safe if a math graduate from MIT worked up the figures and came up with the perfect number of stakes or barrels to hold your tent in place. But then again, those big-brained professors may never have had to deal with a variety of human and weather factors that could affect your safety.
Talk About a Plan
Under certain circumstances, extreme weather may require you and your guests to evacuate the tent. A thunderstorm with lightening or the aforementioned sudden hurricane should set into motion a preplanned evacuation. Some of the issues you need to consider prior to your event include:
Who decides when you should evacuate
Who announces the decision to the guests
Where you will send guests in the event of extreme weather
What path they should take
Who makes the decision to return to the tent once the weather has passed
If you have any doubts about the potential need for an evacuation plan, go over your questions with your tent installer crew leader. He can go over your plans and provide any additional information you may need.
Don’t Chance It
You could get your own tent and save a couple bucks by putting it up yourself. But don’t invite anyone who might accidently bump into a barrel or stumble over a guy-line. And only set up your event in the dead calm of an August afternoon.
