We recommend that if you do have a birthday party I have kids too and generally we try to cut the balloon up and thrown it in the trash instead of letting it go out into the air because I generally find the power lines and cause outages and I know that cars hitting your equipment is a big cause and of course the weather is a big and you guys when you know a storm coming in.
