Inclement Weather Procedures When @ the Soccer Fields

THORGUARD SYSTEM
Richland College has installed a lightning detection system that will provide a warning if there a potential of lightning in the immediate area.  Notices have been posted around the Classic League Soccer Complex by Richland College and here are the procedures for the Board Member on Duty to follow:

One long blast from the warning system will be notification to “CLEAR THE FIELDS AND GO TO YOUR CARS AND REMAIN THERE UNTIL AN ALL CLEAR IS SOUNDED”.

Three blasts from the warning system will be notification for an “ALL CLEAR” to return to the fields.

In addition to the system warning blasts, the YELLOW LIGHT should be turned on during the delay for the fields to remain clear of all people.  Make sure your volunteers and referees remain at the concession building with you for assistance and communication with them.  NO other players, spectators, coaches, etc. should be at the concession area and they should remain in their cars in the parking lots until a change is made in the status of the playing conditions.  Notify the Weather Hotline contact to update that games are in delay so the information can be added to the hotline for teams.

If games are cancelled due to weather conditions or field playability, turn the RED LIGHT on to indicate games are cancelled for the remainder of the day.  Then notify the Weather Hotline and Website Field Status contact to update.
