Wimberley Lions take action to prevent fires!

The Austin Flea Market fire has caused a some people to ask how safe is Lions Field? I believe the Wimberley Lions have been aggressive in fire prevention.
  • Fire Extinguishers are required to be displayed by all vendors and physical inspections are regularly performed to be sure they are present and not outdated.
  • Hay bales, straw, and loose newspaper are not allowed in booths.
  • Wood shaving can not be spread on the ground.
  • A/C and heaters are prohibited in the booths.
  • Electrical wiring is inspected requiring the vendor to repair bad wiring.
  • GFI circuit breakers have been installed to shut off electricity in the event of a short circuit.
The Wimberley Lions Club has property insurance on the Bar-B-Que, rest rooms, and concessions. The vendors are encouraged to obtain their own insurance for their structure and contents.
