Keeping Your Event Safe
Thunder and Lightning Tent Advisory
Bos Structures and Events wants you and your guest to enjoy our tents safely. Please see the following advisory in case severe weather threatens your tented event.
Under normal weather conditions tents provide an excellent haven for outdoor events. However, tents are only temporary structures made of fabric and are not intended to be occupied during extreme weather conditions. Thunder and lightning storms in particular pose a significant safety risk for tented events.
When you have a lightning storm in the vicinity, the best course of action is to evacuate the tent, with the safest place being an enclosed building.
To do otherwise would jeopardize the safety of you and your guests. There really is no alternative, even if there is a small chance that someone could be injured it is not a chance that any of us should take.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration [NOAA] maintains these recommendations on their website regarding lightning and thunder storm safety: "There is little you can do to substantially reduce your risk if you are outside in a thunderstorm. The only completely safe action is to get inside a safe building or vehicle."
