  • EVERYBODY on the POOL DECK, must follow:

"Boca Campus Lightning Prediction System, by Thor Guard, Inc. Protocol"

a)  When conditions for a lightning strike exist, the system will give a 15-second blast on the horn cluster. At the same time, a yellow strobe will activate and stay on until the danger has passed. (Near Entrance of the Pool.). At that time:

          ALL POOL USERS MUST immediately clear the pool and deck areas.

 -         Patrons can congregate in Locker Rooms and Breezeway areas, until the pool reopens.

 -         The Showers cannot be used during thunder and lightning storms.


 b) Once the potential for a lightning strike has passed, the system will activate the horns for an all-clear signal -- three short (5 seconds) blasts -- and the strobe light will stop blinking.
