Information on Lightning Protection in British Columbia
British Columbia is a vast and sprawling Province. With a population of about 4.4 million, over half live in the Greater Vancouver area. Lightning protection systems are becoming more and more common in the construction industry, not only for safety, but also for peace of mind.
On August 8, 2012, two men were struck by lightning and survived. Remember that there is no place safe outside during a thunderstorm. Seek shelter in a substantial building, away from the windows and stay off corded phones, stay out of the tub and shower and away from electronics plugged into the wall.
