Lightning is a severe hazard that must be taken seriously. The City of Carrollton has installed Perry Weather Outdoor Warning Systems at McInnish Sports Complex, R.E. Good Soccer Complex, Josey Ranch Sports Complex, W.J. Thomas Park, Oak Hills Park, Rosemeade Aquatics Complex and Oak Creek Tennis Center.
Perry Weather Systems will give one 15-second blast when lightning strikes within 10 miles of each location. Upon hearing the blast, everyone should immediately stop current activities, remove themselves from the fields and seek appropriate shelter. After the initial 15-second blast, a yellow strobe light on top of the system will begin flashing. This light will remain flashing until safe conditions return.
After the area is clear for 30 minutes from the last strike, the system will provide an all clear by giving three 5-second blasts. Regular activities may resume at this time.
No one is allowed to return to the field until the all-clear is given by the Perry Weather System.
Any association or group that does not follow these procedures, is subject to loss of field privileges.
Everyone should immediately seek shelter any time lightning is believed to be a threat, even if a signal has not been sounded.
