5 tricks you must know when lightning strikes

By Jo Vartanian | Wild Women On Top Coach

The recent tragic death of an international tourist camping on the summit of Mt Warning, on the NSW north coast is a timely reminder to us all about the risks we need to consider when adventuring in the outdoors. Emergency service personnel who attended the incident said that the tourists were victims of extraordinary circumstances and it is very, very unusual for something like this to happen.

In the warmer months, we know that storms are more intense and recent Sydney weather has had its share of lightning storms. At Wild Women on Top we want you to be safe and our coaches are trained in strict protocols when storms are forecast. You can apply the same rules used by our coaches when you are heading out for training or adventuring with your friends.
