ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

If you're wondering if rides at the Spring Carnival in Albany are safe, their rides passed a state inspection. 

In Georgia, the Office of Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner issues permits for amusement rides and conducts safety inspections.

It includes information such as the date the ride was manufactured and the speed of the ride.

Inspectors check nearly two dozen items such as restraining devices, fences, and records and training forms.

It's up to the county health department to inspect and sign off on the food vendors.
