Safety is an important part of having fun

On a cold winter Saturday in New England, I discovered that there’s no better way to spend the evening than at a 24-hour bowling and fun center. The venue my husband, Alex, and I picked, is a popular spot for kiddie birthday parties, league tournaments, corporate events, candlepin bowling, and billiards.

When Alex and I got there, the bowling lanes were packed. We squeezed past screaming kids, couples on first dates, bachelorettes, and parents with babies in carriers. After a 30-minute wait, we ended up in the slightly quieter billiard room, reacquainting ourselves with 8-ball, a game we both excelled at when we were teenagers.

I’m proud to say that I bested my husband, winning three games out of three. But what made the evening even more special was the announcement made over the speakers, interrupting the pulsating, nearly eardrum-splitting music. We were told that in the case of an emergency to exit by tables 8 y 11 and then to go to our left to the exit.

I was glad to know that management was conscious of escape planning and wanted the patrons to know what to do in an emergency. NFPA’s escape planning materials–the safety tip sheet in English and those available in other languages, as well as the tip sheet on safety in places of public assembly, are great tools for reminding the public that safety is an important part of having fun.
