ProMedica Wildwood Athletic Club has a proactive policy of removing swimmers from our indoor pool during lightning storms. The following protocol has been recommended by the American Red Cross and the National Safety Institute and is in place for the protection of our staff, members and guests:
  1. Recognize the threat ahead of time. Wildwood Athletic Club will use alerts from local and national news stations, text alerts, ProMedica Security, and/or seeing lightning or hearing associated thunder.
  2. Identify safe and unsafe places in advance. Safe areas at Wildwood Athletic Club are dry areas inside club. Unsafe areas are places near electrical conductors or equipment, metal objects, water or wet floors.
  3. Take action to suspend activities. When lightning is within six to eight miles, Wildwood Athletic Club will evacuate people to safe areas.
