What can I do to make my home safe from lightning?
The City of Frisco is unaware of a fail-safe method to protect your home from lightning strikes. The manufacturers recommend that lightning protection systems be installed to minimize damage from lightning. They also suggest bonding the products to further safeguard the pipe systems. Most scientists agree that these safeguards will reduce the damage caused by lightning. Cost may be a factor when considering these products.

Lightning also damages electronic devices. We suggest that you always protect your valuable equipment with surge protection. Consult an electrician or a lightning protection expert if you are interested in these safeguards. For more information, please call Frisco Fire Marshal's office at 972-292-6320.
