Risk Assessment of an Air Dancer

Air Dancers, more informally known as “Wacky Wavy Inflatable Arm-Flailing Tubemen” have recently infected our campus. Perhaps we should take a look at the assets and weaknesses of these air dancers from a security standpoint.

Their assets include:

  • Attracting customers
  • Entertainment
  • Attracting attention
  • Substitute scarecrow
  • Scarecrow
However, not everyone loves the air dancers as you and I.  Their Potential Adversaries, Threats, and Weaknesses include:
  • Heavy Rain
  • Power outages
  • Very heavy wind
  • Overhead electrical lines
  • Trees
  • Vehicles and lawnmowers
  • Holes in plastic
  • Blower motor failure
  • Unstable ground leading to falling over
Possible defenses include:
  • Placing the air dancer on a platform so rain will go underneath the dancer, and the dancer will have stable ground and will not fall over.
  • Turn it off when hurricane force winds come to Rochester.
  • Don’t place under electrical wires/trees.

One thought on “Risk Assessment of an Air Dancer

  1. A defense for the angry student could be to have the Air Dancer advertise (and include) free pizza. How could any student stay mad at an Air Dancer that advertises free pizza?
