SERRATAPHOTO - Health and Safety is always my concern

October 15, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
Earlier tonight, I was out in Le Roy, NY to cover Girls Soccer and Volleyball. What I wasn't expecting was a high wind advisory. At first, I thought it would be smart for me to cover the soccer game due to the high wind advisory. Just in case they decided to cancel the game. When my time was up, I head over to cover the girls volleyball game. I guess the time frame when volleyball matches start are different in the LCAA then GR League. The match was done and over. I felt bad; because, it's their sport. Once I walked out, I saw heat lightning from the original wind advisory. No one was moving. The problem is, is the way how the trees were set-up. Plus the soccer field is next to the park. It is a total blind spot. I ended up talking to a few parents from Hornell about it and let them know to keep an eye on it. You have to understand, a heat lightning storm can turn into a thunder and lightning storm. Thank the lord, the wind current pushed the heat lightning storm through the Byron-Bergen into Monroe County area. At the time, I didn't realize that heat lightning can turn into lightning until I saw the bolt of lightning touching the ground in the Monroe County area. I love chasing the storm; because, well... that's who I am. Anywho, for those who follow me - over the years with NYSPHSAA, friends of mind always taught me that health and safety always important. During any state sporting events that I covered, if there was an injury that might of happen - I would document it and hand them over to the state. The idea is how can we prevent the situation happening again. Even a year ago, when a girl in diving bumped her head on the diving board. That was documented. Plus the turn around of the response of an injury from the lifeguard team document. Even this month, when I was doing the interview with the girls about diving after the event - I said to them if your teeth start to chatter or you start shivering - please let me know. Your health and safety my concern.
