PARK RULES & REGULATIONS FOR LIGHTNING WARNING SYSTEM
To ensure the safety of all patrons, the City of Miami Shores provides a lighting warning. The system emits a siren/horn blast to warn patrons when field conditions are safe or may threaten the area.
ONE LONG HORN BLAST: indicates possible lighting in the area. The park is closed and all patrons must exit the fields.
THREE SHORTS HORN BLASTS: signal the “ALL CLEAR” and the park re-opens depending on the field conditions.
