    Lightning Prediction System

    THOR GUARD is a “lightning prediction system” and not a radar.  It uses sensors to evaluate changing atmospheric conditions that are predictive of conditions that are consistent with lightning events.  All schools are covered by a Thorguard system however in some instances where we have multiple schools collocated they operate under a “slave and master” configuration with the master being linked electronically to the slave. By placing THOR GUARD in each school, our goal is to maximize safety by providing our staff and students with critical, timely lightning warning information in an easy-to-use format.
    Select from one of the following to view Thor Guard at your school!
