COLUMBIA, Mo. -

The 2013 Boone County Fair kicked off Tuesday and organizers say safety is one of their primary concerns.

Less than a week after a woman died from falling off a roller coaster at a Texas amusement park, officials in Missouri say rides are inspected at the fair every day before opening.

Fairgrounds management are required to fill out a log sheet detailing inspections for every ride, every day.

If there are any safety concerns throughout the day, organizers will close the ride and inspect it again.

The Missouri State Fire Marshal in charge of inspection crews Tuesday said they look at the safety restraints, completed daily logs and at the entrances and exits of the rides.
