The lightning hazard to people is greatest for those who are outdoors at work or play.
Consequently, the best protection can be obtained by following a few simple safety rules:
Do not go or stay outdoors in thunderstorms.
Seek shelter in buildings with lightning protection systems, enclosed automobiles, trains, etc.
Avoid tents, open-top autos, unprotected buildings.
Avoid open fields, athletic fields, golf courses, wire fences, isolated trees, swimming pools
and open bodies of water such as lakes. (Do not ride in open vehicles in above areas.)
If possible, seek dense woods, depressed areas, and/or buildings in low areas.
