EMS Tips

It is event standby season. If you hear thunder or see lightning go inside a building (a structure with walls, doors, and windows). Don’t stand under a pavilion roof, in an open garage door of an apparatus bay, or lean against a tree.

This National Weather Service video has been making the rounds on social networks. Lots of volts.
