If is child is lost, all sports have walkie talkies in addition to the concession stands, channel 7 - T&C communications. A COD should take the lost child to the closest concession stand and communication there is a lost child on walkie talkie to the other sports. COD’s will use golf carts and gators to search complex.

T&C LIGHTNING POLICY AND PROCEDURE:
When you see lightning or hear thunder, immediately suspend activities and go to your car. If you are unable to get to your car, please go to the nearest concession stand patio, restroom, or middle of the pavilion on the 20's field. The lightning light will be activated and the siren (bull horn) will sound 4 times. All practices/games will be suspended for 30 minutes. Only when you see the light go off and hear the siren (bull horn) sound 2 times is it ok to go back to the fields.
This is to be done by a commissioner on duty (COD). Do not assume that someone else is going to activate the light. Any COD on duty has the ability to engage the lightning light. It does not matter which sport engages the light as the policy is for the entire complex and must be adhered to.
Activate the lightning light and sound the siren. The lightning box is located by the main garage by the office on the east end by the 3 sheds. It is the silver box labeled "lightning box" and the code for the lightning box is the restroom code, the code will be available to those assigned for each sport, this is not to be shared as public information.
Once the box is open you must activate the lightning light by turning the switch on. The siren (bull horn) is also in the box and must be sounded four times. This indicates that everyone must clear the fields immediately and go to their cars. If in the event that someone does not have a car to go to, they can go to the nearest concession stand and take cover under the concession stand patio, or the middle of the pavilion on the 20's field, or the restroom. They CANNOT take cover in dugouts, inside concession stand or machine garage. Once the light is activated, the field will be closed for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, the commissioner or coach will determine if it is safe to open the fields. If lightning is spotted within the 30 minute time-the time is then started over for another 30 minutes.
The commissioner that activates the light will be responsible for determining if it is all clear and able to return to the field. He/she is also responsible for deactivating the lightning light and sounding the siren. The siren is to be sounded two times and the light turned off. This means that it is safe to return to the fields.
At any time you see that the lightning light is blinking, the fields are closed. Every person on the field must adhere to the lightning policy. Any violators will be subject to review by T&C and will not be allowed to practice on T&C Sports Complex. T&C takes the safety of all of our patrons very seriously and we ask that all of our volunteers make sure they understand the policy and procedure and forward this information to your coaches, team parents, and managers.
