Do I Need Lightning Rods For Camera Poles?

Hi we have a campus network with cameras on road side.

The cameras are mounted on steel poles. I have a electrician suggesting that we need to put some type of lightning rod on the pole to provide lightning protection.

I'm not sure if this is necessary. Any comments are welcome.
