The "Safer Design for Safer Play" initiative dovetails with new efforts by the National Weather Service (NWS) to promote greater lightning safety at outdoor venues.  The NWS has created a new "Lightning Safety Toolkit for Large Venues" that details the voluntary steps recreational facilities can adopt to better protect patrons from lightning threats in order to earn NWS recognition for a lightning safety program.
