CCRP Snow Inclement Weather Policy

Policy for Lightning and Thunder on Carroll County Fields:

  • For Carroll County fields at Schools and Parks fields:

Thunder & Lightning Policy per Carroll County Recreation and Parks:

Once lightning is observed or thunder is heard during outdoor activities, all athletic fields must be cleared for a period of 30 minutes. If lightning is observed (or thunder heard) again, the 30 minute period of cleared fields starts over.

  • For High school fields:  

Carroll County Public Schools is pleased to announce the recent installation of a lightning detection system near high school athletic fields.  The purpose of this new technology from Earth Networks Weather Bug is to assist high school staff in the event of a lightning storm in their area and to allow adequate time for athletes and spectators to reach cover.

When lightning is detected within a 10 mile radius of the school, the sound of a horn will be heard for 15 seconds, alerting all people in the area to seek shelter. At the same time, a strobe light will be activated and will remain in effect for the entire at-risk time frame. Once lightning has not been detected in the area for a period of 30 minutes, there will be three 5-second horn sounds notifying everyone in attendance that it is safe to return to the area.
