Dear Bluegreen Guest,
Thank you for choosing to spend your vacation with us. We hope you enjoy your stay and take away many cherished memories to reminisce about for years to come.
One of our top goals during your stay is your safety and that of your loved ones. Should the unfortunate incident of a missing child occur, we would like you to be aware of the proper steps to take. The quicker you act, the better the chances of a faster recovery of your child.
Several years ago, associates in a Wal-Mart store developed a procedure to help find children who had wandered away from their parents and reported missing or lost inside a retail store. The program was named Code Adam in memory of a young child, Adam Walsh, who in 1981 was abducted from a Sears department store in Florida. Adam’s father is John Walsh, a co-founder of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and host of the television show “Americas Most Wanted.”
Today, Code Adam is a nationally recognized missing child safety program in the United States and thousands of department stores, retail shops, shopping malls, supermarkets, amusement parks, and museums volunteer in the program. Bluegreen is proud to add its name to the long list of those participating.
Your Course of Action
If you believe that your child is missing, do not panic, but do take action immediately. Search the area checking wherever a child may crawl or hide. Children think hiding is a game and hiding places are limitless in the mind of a child.
If you still cannot find your child after a thorough search, call Guest Services at “0” and report him/her missing. You will be asked to provide the following information:
Be prepared to report to the Guest Services area to provide additional information if needed.
The front desk has already been instructed to immediately announce a Code Adam to the Code Adam Team as soon as they receive the report of a missing child. They will provide the team with all the information you have given them. All associates assigned to the Code Adam Team will immediately stop what they are doing and search for the child.
If the child is not found within 10 minutes of initiating the Code Adam, Guest Services will contact local law enforcement and request assistance.
We hope this encounter will never take place, but would like you to know what the appropriate steps to take are, and that Bluegreen will be with you every step of the way.
Best wishes for a happy, memorable and safe vacation,
The Management and Staff of The Hammocks at Marathon
