I am so happy with the new owners of Journal for such a great article. The kids and their coach worked very hard for this.

Often, financial support comes with a catch. If the team can manage to get by with fundraisers and donations, it's worth it to keep the school administration at bay.

Lightning Safety Awareness Week Kicks Off June 22

9 months ago by Bryan Nichols

Campaign draws attention to hazards and preparedness measures

June 22 – 28, 2014 marks Lightning Safety Awareness Week – an awareness campaign to learn about the lightning hazards of summer and the preparedness actions you should take when storms threaten.

During the week, FEMA’s Region V office in Chicago will be distributing lightning safety tips as well as important information about protecting your property in a storm and staying safe while at a park or anywhere else outdoors when lightning is near. 

For even more readiness information throughout the week, follow us online at twitter.com/femaregion5 and facebook.com/fema. Individuals can always find valuable thunderstorm and lightning information at ready.gov/thunderstorms-lightning or download the free FEMA app, available for Android, Apple or Blackberry devices.

FEMA’s mission is to support our citizens and first responders to ensure that as a nation we work together to build, sustain, and improve our capability to prepare for, protect against, respond to, recover from, and mitigate all hazards.
