New Finley Ray Park Lightning Policy


  We have a Lightning Prediction System in the park for the safety of our players, spectators, and workers. When the system detects lightning, you will be warned by ONE 15 second blast of the horn. This signals suspension of all activities. A strobe light will then begin to flash. You should immediately seek appropriate safe shelter, preferably your automobile. You may resume activities only after THREE 5 second blasts of the horn are sounded and the strobe light stops flashing. If you remain outdoors after the warning is issued, you do so at your own risk. Any Milford Baseball and Soccer Manager or Coach that does not adhere to this policy will be brought before the GMAA Board and appropriate disciplinary action will be taken.

The Lightning Prediction System is set for a local radius, but if you hear thunder or see lightning and the prediction system has not sounded, you must leave the fields.  Soccer teams and spectators may return to the fields 30 minutes after the last thunder or lightning occurrence.  The baseball bench covers and pavilions are not grounded and will not provide protection from lightning.
