In consideration of the acceptance of the entry to the Dr. Martin Luther King Parade Foundation, Inc., as an authorized representative, do hereby state the following.
The Safety Officer will be the Point of Contact. Safety Officers are to wear safety vest that must be worn and visible at all times; safety vest will not be provided. The Safety Officer will be required to remain with their unit following entry into the staging area. The Safety Officer is required to review safety rules with safety monitors, vehicle drivers, and all group participants. Safety Officer is to oversee the safe disbanding of their unit until the last person has disembarked their vehicle/float and participants are reunited with transportation. Special care should be taken to ensure children are returned to transportation accordingly.
All motor vehicle parade units require a safety officer. Each parade applicant (organization) shall provide (4) four Safety Monitors stationed at the corners of any vehicle/float used in the parade at all times while the vehicle(s) are moving. Each Safety Monitor should be equipped in safety vest and a coach’s whistle. The role of the Safety Monitor is to make sure the driver is aware of any emergency requiring him/her to stop immediately. Emergencies include, but are not limited to, equipment malfunctions, passengers falling from vehicle, overhead obstructions, endangered riders, and parade viewers breaching the area and coming too close to entry vehicle/floats. Safety Monitors and vehicle/unit drivers are not to consume any alcoholic beverages or hand out items to spectators along the parade route. Units that do not have the requisite numbers of Safety Monitors may be pulled from the parade lineup until Safety Monitor requirements are met.
