Lightning Prevention
Each year, thousands of homes are damaged or destroyed by lightning. It's responsible for more deaths and property loss than tornadoes, hurricanes and floods combined. Lightning is the only disaster that we can afford to protect ourselves against. We need to do the following;


  • Get indoors or in a car;
  • Avoid water and all metal objects;
  • Get off the high ground;
  • Avoid solitary trees;
  • Stay off the telephone;
  • Don't be in a metal shed.
