Woodcliff Lake System Now Installed

The lightning detection system in Woodcliff Lake has been both installed and tested as of recently.

In addition to installing the system, Woodcliff Lake has passed a town ordinance which declares that everyone must immediately get off the field if the system is activated.

Citizens will know the system is activated when a lightning strike within 8 miles sets off the siren. The siren will be activated every 30 seconds accompanied by flashing strobes.

An ‘all clear’ sign will be given when it is safe to return to the sports fields/recreation areas. The ‘all clear’ sign will consist of a different sounding siren.

This system is very similar to other systems installed in surrounding Bergen County towns.
