Weather Alert System

16 FEB | BY US YOUTH SOCCER REGION II

For the Memphis17 Interregional event, please see the below information regarding the Thor-guard that will be used in case of inclement weather while at Mike Rose Soccer Complex.

THOR-GUARD:

The Mike Rose Soccer Complex has a “Thor Guard Lightning Prediction System” This system warns of the possibility of lightning within a two mile radius of the Complex.

You will be warned by a one 15 second blast of the horn signaling suspension of activities and a strobe light will begin flashing and remain flashing until safe conditions return. You should immediately seek an appropriate, safe shelter. The most logical spot is the car.

You may resume activities only after three 5 second blast of the horn are sounded and the strobe light stops flashing. Again, the system only sends out the all clear when safe conditions return. The strobe light and horn are located on the stadium building (stadium parking lot side) and on the well house by the maintenance building. Also, there are posters attached to the bathrooms for public knowledge. If you remain outdoors after the warning is issued, you do so at your own risk. The system is active from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m, 7 days a week.

The MRSC Security Guard will also directly notify the referees for each field if the Thor Guard System has signaled suspension of activities.
