In the event Hendersonville Parks and Recreation Department's lightning detection system detects a lightning event and sounds an alarm (single horn sound), all players, coaches, referees, officials, scorekeepers and members of the Board of Directors MUST exit the rink playing surface and bench areas and seek shelter immediately.
No persons will be allowed inside chain link fenced areas (including the rink surface and bench areas) after a single horn or while the strobe mounted to the baseball field concession stand is illuminated.

In the event Hendersonville Parks Department's lightning detection system detects an event during gameplay or practice time and sounds an alert, the following rules apply:
Immediately evacuate the rink and bench areas and seek shelter.
Gameplay and/or practice cannot resume until the All Clear Signal is given.
Practices can resume after the All Clear Signal is given unless the regularly scheduled end of practice time has already been reached. If the end of the regularly scheduled practice time has passed, then that scheduled practice is over and the rink must be available to the next scheduled team.
Games will resume once the All Clear Signal is given provided that the next scheduled game is not delayed.
Regularly scheduled game times will not be delayed to accommodate a game which has been delayed due to the lightning detection system.
