ELECTRICAL AND THUNDER STORMS/ EMERGENCY SIRENS
If lightning is seen, thunder is heard, or the Thorguard Lightning Prediction System activates (15 second horn blast), the following must be strictly adhered to.
- All games and practices must be stopped and the players immediately cleared from the field. Players shall seek refuge under a covered shelter, in a car, or inside a building.
- At locations that have the Thorguard System, wait for the all clear (3 short horn blasts). If the all clear has not sounded after 20 minutes, the game or practice must be canceled.
- At locations that do not have the Thorguard System, or if the system is not working, there will be a mandatory twenty (20) minute wait, from the last lightning seen or thunder heard, to see if the storm passes before any play can be resumed. However, the game or practice must be canceled if the severe weather has continued for thirty (30) minutes.
On overcast days coaches must check the Thorguard System at Armstrong, McCaslin, Bierman, Hampe, and Red Hawk Parks. The Thorguard System at each location has a yellow strobe light affixed to the antenna. When the system has been activated, the strobe light flashes every 20 to 30 seconds. If the strobe light is flashing, the system has been activated, conditions for lightning exist, and the fields cannot be used.
