Fulton Homes’ Fence Patrol Provides Pool Fences For Residents In Need

Tempe-based homebuilder giving away 15 pool fences throughout the summer

A swimming pool is the most common site for a drowning to occur for children ages one to four. Last year, eight children and 11 adults drowned in the Valley; overall, there were 69 water-related incidents, according to the www.phoenix.gov. These alarming statistics are the reasons Fulton Homes, for the 13th consecutive year, is sponsoring its successful water safety program.

Fulton Homes launches its popular Fence Patrol program in April, which over the years has provided free pool fences for Valley residents in need. Fence Patrol highlights the importance of always watching children around water.

Fulton Homes will award its first pool fence of the season on April 21. The program, conducted in partnership with KMLE 107.9 and Ironman Pool Fences, will give away one pool fence a week to families in need through August. The public will be encouraged to nominate someone they know that needs a pool fence by visiting KMLE1079.com and clicking on the Fence Patrol icon.

“For 13 years, Fulton Homes has proudly sponsored Fence Patrol in hopes that we can make pools safer for Valley families,” Doug Fulton, CEO of Fulton Homes, says. “But, a fence is only a barrier. Watching children around water, teaching them to swim and having an adult who knows how to perform CPR are all critical for protection against drowning and near-drowning accidents. Drowning is a terrible reality in Arizona, and we want to continue doing everything we can to prevent another family tragedy.”

Fence Patrol is one of several water safety-related initiatives Fulton Homes supports. The Tempe-based homebuilder also sponsors the “2 Seconds is Too Long” campaign at Valley shopping malls throughout the summer.
