Lightning Detection

The Wave Siren Lightning Prediction System is installed at Fox Bend Golf Course, Old Post Park, Prairie Point Community Park, PrairieFest Park, and Wormley Heritage Park. Park users must adhere to system warnings and take shelter when a warning signal has sounded. Activities may not resume until the system has sounded an all-clear signal. Lightning systems are not failsafe and systems are not located in all parks therefore, common sense and independent judgment must also be used.

The system uses two warning signals:

One 5 second blast: Lightning is imminent. Take immediate cover in a building or hard-top vehicle. When the above is not available, seek dense woods or low-lying areas.
Two 3 second blasts: Danger reduced / all clear
Light: A strobe light also flashes until danger is reduced.
