2013 Jamboree Lightning Guide

When Lightning is detected 10 miles out from the SBR a weather alert will sound.  Please take the following precautions:

  • “AVOID” open fields and ridge tops
  • “SPREAD OUT” if in a group
  • “STAY AWAY” from tall, isolated objects
  • If you are in a forest, stay near a lower stand of trees
  • Remember, a tent offers NO protection from lightning
  • Most activities will be a suspended — zip lines, climbing, and aquatics activities closed
  • Wait until ALL CLEAR is announced before resuming activity
