With this week being National Lightning Safety Week, Honolulu Fire Department provided some tips on how to protect yourself.

  • Stay indoors.
  • Stay away from windows and corded electronics.
  • If you don’t have shelter at home, staying in your vehicle helps. Make sure you’re under the roof of the car.
  • Avoid being under a tree, near concrete walls and floors due to the metal rebar in the concrete.
