9 Canadian Co. Uninc. Areas Multi- Hazard Mitigation Planning Holdenville OK In May, 2006, a lightning strike at Holdenville City Hall destroyed the system, burned out the police dispatch radio console, and caused over $25,000 in damage Lightning

10 Canadian Co. Uninc. Areas Multi- Hazard Mitigation Planning Lightning Flash Density Map: Lightning

11 Canadian Co. Uninc. Areas Multi- Hazard Mitigation Planning Lightning temperatures can reach 50, hotter than the surface of the sun Lightning kills an average of 58 people per year. Only 20% of lightning strike victims die. Most are permanently disabled Lightning can strike 10 miles out from a rain column. Deaths often occur under a clear sky 30% of all power outages are lightning- related, with total costs approaching $1 Billion. Lightning Facts Lightning

12 Canadian Co. Uninc. Areas Multi- Hazard Mitigation Planning 18% of all lumberyard and 30% of all church fires are lightning-related Homeowners receive 256,000 paid claims per year. The average claim is $3,446 (not including deductibles) During , fire departments responded to about 31,000 lightning- caused fires Lightning causes a average of almost 8,700 reported structure fires and 26,200 outdoor fires each year Insurance companies pay out over $1 billion in reimbursements annually Lightning Losses Lightning

20 Canadian Co. Uninc. Areas Multi- Hazard Mitigation Planning Investigate the need for surge protection in existing critical facilities and provide where necessary. Provide lightning detection / warning systems.Provide lightning detection / warning systems. Provide educational demonstrations and information in whole-house surge protection technology. Mitigation Measures 2004 Plan Where do we stand on them? Lightning

21 Canadian Co. Uninc. Areas Multi- Hazard Mitigation Planning Goals & Objectives GOAL: To reduce injuries, loss of life, and damage to property, equipment and infrastructure caused by Lightning strikes. 1. Public Information & Education. Improve public awareness of Lightning hazards and measures by which people can protect themselves, their property and their community. 2. Preventive Measures. Identify the costs and the benefits of loss-prevention programs, such as whole building surge protection, with consideration for uncalculated benefits such as data or work productivity loss. Lightning

22 Canadian Co. Uninc. Areas Multi- Hazard Mitigation Planning Goals & Objectives (cont.) GOAL: To reduce injuries, loss of life, and damage to property, equipment and infrastructure caused by Lightning strikes. 3. Structural Projects.

Identify ways to protect structures, infrastructure, and critical facilities and their occupants from damage caused by lightning strikes. Lightning

23 Canadian Co. Uninc. Areas Multi- Hazard Mitigation Planning Goals & Objectives (cont.) GOAL: To reduce injuries, loss of life, and damage to property, equipment and infrastructure caused by Lightning strikes. 5. Emergency Services. Establish or expand emergency services protocols that adequately address response scenarios in the event of incidents with the possibility of severe lightning. 6. Natural Resource Protection. Ensure that Lightning damage mitigation policies have no negative impacts and, when possible, provide positive enhancements to the environment. Lightning

24 Canadian Co. Uninc. Areas Multi- Hazard Mitigation Planning Potential mitigation measures Which 2004 measures do we keep? What are some additional measures we may adopt in 2009? Lightning

25 Canadian Co. Uninc. Areas Multi- Hazard Mitigation Planning Public Information & Education Continue educating the community about proper lightning safety. Some insurance companies may offer rate discounts for lightning protection. Lightning Mitigation Measures (Examples) Lightning

26 Canadian Co. Uninc. Areas Multi- Hazard Mitigation Planning Public Information & Education Provide designated weather spotters with hand-held weather radios to monitor during sporting events and other activities Lightning Mitigation Measures (Examples) Lightning

27 Canadian Co. Uninc. Areas Multi- Hazard Mitigation Planning Property Protection Provide whole building surge protection in critical facilities and UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supplies) on critical electronic devices, including computers Lightning Mitigation Measures (Examples) Lightning

28 Canadian Co. Uninc. Areas Multi- Hazard Mitigation Planning Structural Projects Develop a back-up location for dispatch, , 9-1-1, and EOC in the event of a devastating lightning strike to the infrastructure of a facility.
