Fair officials making sure rides safe, ready for opening


The Salem Fire is just days away officials say they are making sure the rides are safe and ready.

As all the rides were being put together Monday a state certified inspector, Rick Warble shared all the checks they do to make sure the rides don’t malfunction.

He’s been out there for the past two days and says he wanted to dispel the rumors that fair rides are anything less than safe.

“These rides are safe. if I put my name on this ride I’ll put my kid on this ride. The owners of the show, their kids ride these rides and they’ll be riding them this week,” Warble said.

He says that even during the fair all the rides are checked regularly to make sure they are working properly.
