This facility is protecting you from lightning and severe storms with an Earth Networks Sferic Siren Lightning Alerting System.

When lightning and severe storms come near your location, the system will sound a loud horn and activate a flashing strobe light, indicating it is unsafe to be outdoors.

When lightning is in the area, it's important to take shelter in a safe weather-proof indoor location:

  • Enclosed building
  • Stay away from windows
  • If you can't find shelter, get in your enclosed car or truck

Stay away from:

  • Water
  • Trees
  • Metal fences
  • Golf carts
  • Mowers
  • Elevated ground
  • Power lines

The Earth Networks Total Lightning Network monitors the skies for both in-cloud and cloud-to-ground lightning strikes (aka "total lightning"). When lightning is detected, this global network of lightning sensors automatically issues severe weather alerts to impacted areas - up to 50% faster than other sources.

Please note, this facility may have "silence times" enabled during nighttime or other hours when the facility is closed. During these time frames, the Sferic Siren will not activate when lightning is detected.
