DPS Offers Lightning Awareness Tips


As part of Lighting Awareness Week, the Department of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness office would like to help you stay safe during the severe weather season. 

Here are some lightning safety tips for indoors: 

  • Stay away from windows, doorways, upper floors, plumbing, plugged in appliances, balconies and porches.
  • While in your car, do not touch the radio, CB, ignition or other metal objects. 
  • Dog houses are not safe. Bring your pets inside.
