Main Event - Safety Team
This team monitors the main event space and outdoor areas, making sure exits are not blocked and all areas remain wheelchair accessible.  The Bathroom Attendant Team will offer assistance in the restroom, if needed.  If a guest requires assistance with more than getting in and out of a stall or hand washing, it is appropriate to contact their parent or caregiver for assistance.  The EMT and Law Enforcement Team provides a safe environment for guests by having uniformed personnel on site during the event.
