Planning for Lightning
Lightning can be an event planner’s worst nightmare, especially true for outdoor events.
About 2,000 people are killed worldwide by lightning each year; a 1 in 3000 chance of being struck in the U.S. in your lifetime.
Did you know… you can be struck by lightning from 10 miles away, with blue skies overhead?
How are you monitoring the weather?
What is your contingency plan?
Standing under a tall tree to take shelter does not count!
Think about it!
