MGPD Thor Guard Activation

The Morton Grove Park District (MGPD) is further enhancing the safety of the community with the installation of the Thor Guard Lightning Prediction System. The system is designed to reduce the danger of lightning strikes by predicting the occurrence of lightning eight to 20 minutes before it could potentially strike. With a coverage area radius of 2.5 miles, the Thor Guard Lightning Prediction System will help protect Morton Grove area baseball and soccer fields as well as pools, playgrounds, and parks. When a lightning threat is detected within that radius, a 15-second horn blast will sound and a strobe light will flash. The horn blast and strobe flash will signal suspension of all outdoor activities and park patrons should immediately seek shelter. Once the threat has diminished, the horn will sound three short blasts and the strobe flash will turn off. The lightning prediction system will operate from 7:00 am to 10:00 pm, seven days a week from April through October.
