Lightning Safety

During thunderstorms, the pool will be closed for 30 minutes following the last visible strike or audible thunder. Lightning’s behavior is random and unpredictable. The distance from Strike A to Strike B to Strike C is often 5-8 miles and it can strike much farther away. We are conservative when it comes to lightning safety to keep our members and guests safe at the pool.

Swimming pools are connected to a much larger surface area via underground water pipes, gas lines, electric and telephone wiring, etc. Lightning strikes to the ground anywhere on this metallic network may induce shocks elsewhere.

In the event of a thunderstorm at the pool, move to a safe location!

Safe places include the clubhouse, locker rooms, or your car.

Unsafe places are near metal or water; under trees; on hills; near electrical/electronics equipment.
