Reminder: Lightning and Thunder

Just a refresher on our weather policies considering it's been a while!

All players, parents, spectators are to clear the fields at the sound of thunder or sight of lightning.  Any games and practices can resume 30 minutes after the last lightning/thunder (so if it happens at minute 29, the clock resets to another 30 minutes).

The Complex has a lightning alarm.  It will light up as lightning approaches (although it is hard to see from the fields), and will sound an alarm when lightning is imminent.  You must clear the fields ASAP.  If a ref is not calling the game, get your player and leave the field and let us know so we can advise the EMSA head ref or our Referee Director.  Don't worry about looking like an idiot - no soccer game is worth serious injury or worse!

The Weather Network has a convenient app that allows you to receive notifications about lightning and weather warnings.   Lightningmaps.org is another website that shows lightning strikes as they approach (I am addicted to it!).

But don't rely just on technology...common sense should prevail!  If you hear thunder or see lightning, don't take any chances...head for safety!

Or as the players say, "Don't be lame, end the game!"

PS And we try our best, but we can't always get the website updated as quickly as a storm approaches...we are usually out on the pitch too!
