Environmental Safety

Lightning and Adverse Weather

Signs of imminent thunderstorm activity include:

  • Darkening clouds
  • High winds
  • Thunder or lightning activity

Heat Index Recommendations

Thirty (30) minutes prior to the start of activity, temperature and humidity readings should be taken at the practice or competition site.

If a reading is determined whereby activity is to be decreased (above 95 degrees Heat Index), then re-readings would be required every 30 minutes to determine if further activity should be eliminated or preventative steps taken, or if an increased level of activity can resume. Using the following scale, activity must be altered and/or eliminated based on this Heat Index as determined.

To calculate heat index visit:
