-Floats must be equipped with portable ABC fire extinguishers.
-Nothing may be distributed to onlookers from a moving vehicle or a float.
-Riders on floats must have secure seating or a secure handhold or safety harness if standing.
-Floats must not be overcrowded. Participants must not walk close to moving floats.
-An adult must accompany girls on any moving float.
-Any coupling of a trailer to a vehicle must be appropriate to the load and have a safety chain.
-Floats drawn by trucks and automobiles must be covered by automobile insurance in the name of the vehicle owners.

PLEASE NOTE: Troop Leaders are responsible for supervision and ratios of the troop and its friend/family members. Prepare accordingly and read through the Safety Activity Checkpoints under Parades and other large group gatherings. More specific information will be provided as the event gets closer.
