Game fields are for scheduled use only...violators will be ticketed.
The City of Frisco has installed three lightning predictors in the following locations:
The Youth Center unit is located beyond the center field fence, north of the old flag pole. The Shawnee unit is beyond the yellow field center field fence, next to the playground. The Warren unitis located near the northwest corner of the west football field. The City will be testing the system on weekdays, once a week during the day when no one is playing. The sensors will be cleaned every thirty days.
When a probability of lightning is detected the horn will sound continuously for fifteen seconds and the yellow light will begin flashing. At this time all fields will be cleared. The yellow light will continue to flash as long as a threat exists. When a threat is no longer detected, the horn will sound three short blasts and the yellow light will go off. It is then safe to return to the fields and resume play.
As soon as the horn sounds and the yellow light goes on, all games will be immediately stopped. Players, officials and spectators must leave the fields IMMEDIATELY and seek shelter for the duration of the threat (cars are strongly suggested as the space around the concession stand is very limited). Should the referees feel, using their best judgment, that a potential threat is present, they HAVE the authority to stop the games even before the alarm is triggered.
Since there is no way to determine how long the threat will last, the following rules will apply for all games, regardless of who stops them (alarm or referee):
Just because the skies look relatively clear, a lightning strike can still occur.
Thanks for your cooperation and helping put the safety of our youth first.
