Lightning Policy

Coaches and Parents:

Town & Country Sports have been closely monitoring the weather for the past several days and it's likely we will encounter some weather delays.  We ask for your support and understanding as we will do everything we can to insure your families safety. 

The Town & Country Sports Complex is  monitored by a Thor Guard lightning prediction and warning system.  The Thor Guard system measures atmospheric conditions at the T&C campus and surrounding area.  When the conditions reach the threshold for potential lightning, an alarm will sound (one long blast of the sirens) and the strobe lights will begin to flash. 

Steps to take when the Thor Guard sirens and lights are activated:

1.  EVERYONE on the T&C campus must take immediate shelter, either in cars or in the T&C restrooms (these are the safest structures).

2. Only when the Thor Guard system gives the 'all clear' (3 short siren blasts and the lights go off), may activities resume.

It is the responsibility of every adult on campus to comply with these steps, and to ensure that every child also complies.  This is a Zero Tolerance safety condition for participating at T&C.  Failure to comply is to do so at your own safety risk, and with possible expulsion from the T&C campus and future activities.
