Hundreds of individuals are injured or killed every year by lightning and STRIKE is here to help

STRIKE is a life-safety application® available for iOS and Android devices designed specifically to notify subscribers when lightning is detected and again when it’s safe to continue play or practice. Additionally, STRIKE can alert on over 100 other hazardous weather events including weather watches and warnings.

STRIKE harnesses the power of ENTLN’s lightning network, combining it with a patented alerting engine developed by Weather Decision Technologies, Inc. to deliver instant notifications whether you’re on or off the field. An alert is sent when a lightning strike is first detected within 6 miles of your location and an all clear is sent when no lightning is detected within that range for 30 minutes. These distance rules are recommended by lightning experts and adhered to by NCAA, NFHS, and other sports associations to ensure safety while outdoors.

“Simply put, lightning is unpredictable and the key to safety is preparation and awareness,” says Renny Vandewege, Business Development Lead for the STRIKE project. “We’re excited to work with organizations of any size to ensure their participants are always safe from lightning and other weather hazards while enjoying the activities they love.
