SIRC and Environment Canada are pleased to provide you with information regarding weather safety.

30-30 Rule

Be sure your sport association has a lightning safety policy and that everyone knows the 30-30 rule.

  • When you can count 30 seconds or less between lightning and thunder, head for safe shelter
  • Remain sheltered for 30 minutes after the last clap of thunder.

To help you remember the 30-30 rule and these important safety tips, as well as to help protect yourself from wind chill, Environment Canada and SIRC have created wallet-sized business cards that you can print out and distribute.
