Our very own Dr Franco D'Alessandro has recently been quoted in our national newspaper “The Australian”.  As our Chief Technology Officer and his position on various lightning standard committees, Franco is often called upon to comment or interview for articles. 
This article is about a family of 4 in QLD who took cover from a storm under a rotunda, the rotunda was hit by lightning and tragically killed Kane Bennett.  Franco speaks about the standards and his views on how far we should go to protect all structures from lightning.
