What is CARES?

Council of Amusement and Recreational Equipment Safety

The Council of Amusement and Recreation Equipment Safety (CARES) was founded in the late 1990s as a voluntary organization of chief government officials in the United States and Canada responsible for the enforcement of amusement ride regulations within their jurisdictions.

The organization has scaled back its efforts in recent years, but resources collected by CARES have been uploaded to the RidesDatabase site for continued use by regulatory officials, industry, and consumers.
