Lightning Policy

Lightning Detection System

The purpose of this system is to protect patrons using the facility when dangerous storms pass through.

Sensors have been installed on the roof of the Advenist HealthCare Fieldhouse (formerly Discovery Sports Center).  When dangerous conditions exist, the following steps will take place:

  • Horns on the roof will sound for 15 seconds
  • The 15-second blast indicates ALL patrons must immediately go to their cars
  • This 15-second horn will blast when dangerous conditions have been identified, even if you do not see lightning, do not ignore this signal
  • When dangerous conditions no longer exist, the horns will blast 3 shorter bursts
  • You may return to the field after the 3 shorter blasts have sounded
