This page is for those involved with outdoor actives and who are responsible for the safety of people who attend those activities.
WARNING: Do not base your hazardous weather response or your personal safety solely on this page. Rather, it is to assist you along with your established hazardous weather protocols in making decisions for the safety of those attending your activity. This information should not be your sole source and should be used in addition to other weather data gathering sources.
Your protocols should include an assigned person to monitor the weather and someone to monitor local weather data sources such as the NWS, local TV weather and monitor a local lightning detector. For more on large venue severe weather safety protocols, visit the NWS lightning safety links below.
