During games on Saturday, May 4th and Saturday May 11th the Thor Guard weather system installed at Randolph Park went off due to thunder and lightning in the area. There was confusion amongst coaches, umpires, players, and fans. Therefore, here is the protocol to follow whenever the alarm is blown:
1. When the Thor Guard horn sounds for 15 consecutive seconds all parties are to leave all fields and seek shelter. Preferably everyone should return to their vehicle and await further instructions. Do not leave the parking lot because we will try to continue games or practices once the system gives the all clear signal.
2. Subsequently, 3 five second blasts from the Thor Guard system indicates ALL CLEAR and it is safe to return to field.
3. During these two timeframes, the strobe light on top of the concession stand/station will remain illuminated and will not stop until ALL CLEAR is established by system.
