Indoor facilities are connected to a much larger surface area through underground water pipes, gas lines and telephone wiring. According to the National Lightning Safety Institute, if lightning strikes anywhere on this metallic network, it may induce shocks elsewhere.

The National Safety Institute, YMCA of the USA, and the American Red Cross recommends waiting at least 30 minutes before entering the pool.

Please clear the Pool and the Pool deck when thunder and/or lightning has been heard and/or seen.
