The rapid growth of urbanization and the growth of metropolitan cities in developing countries, the movement of today's and tomorrow's economy towards urban characteristics, the imposition of environmental and geographical conditions on societies, and the alignment of the world toward a unified system has led the necessity of a multifaceted science called urban management be increasingly felt. Lightning and thunderbolts are two very interesting phenomena in the face of which human beings have long been doomed, and it has not been long since they have been able, by relying on the science of electrical conduction, to save their lives and their structures from unpredictable invasions of thunderbolt. In this research, which is conducted by the secondary method, information from different sources and books is collected and classified using note-taking method. The findings of this research show that the broad dimensions of casualties and losses caused by thunderbolt necessitates extensive research in the field of optimization and immunization of cities. In this regard, in urban development plans, reducing the vulnerability of citizens and society to lightning phenomena is necessary. Therefore, for sustainable development, cities must work towards sustainability. It is according to this view that cities and citizens should be trained in ways, including crisis drills, to enhance their readiness in order to be able to deal with natural disasters (thunderbolt), and so be able to survive and grow.
