The slide attendant will take (2) 15-minute breaks and (1) 30-minute break throughout the day for lunch.  Their job is hot, and they need to apply sunscreen and get water.  They also need a restroom break.  They will close the slide during this time.  They will try and take their breaks during lower attendance times and inclement weather if possible.  They will also rotate from the bottom of the slide to the top.

Lightening and Thunder Rules-  Per the Red Cross, the 30/30 rule- Attendant will count the seconds between seeing lightening and hearing thunder.  If this time is less than 30 seconds, lightening is a threat (especially high up on a slide platform).  Everyone should seek shelter.  The attendant will wait 30 minutes​ from that strike to open the slide.  Every lightning strike adds 30 minutes of wait time.  Slide will reopen once there has been no lightening or thunder for 30 minutes.
