Fulton Homes '2 Seconds Is Too Long'
Returns as Drowning Numbers Increase

Tempe-based homebuilder's annual campaign reminds adults of water safety

The statistics are alarming. According to ChildrenSafetyZone.com as of May 31, 2015, three children, one teen and ten adults have already drowned in Valley pools this year. In 2014, there were 53 drowning fatalities—33 adults, 6 teenagers and 14 children—in the Valley area. Some 75 children and 24 adults were involved in near-drowning incidents during the same time period.

Remaining proactive in reducing the number of water tragedies and near drowning, Fulton Homes, in conjunction with KTAR FM and Arizona Sports 98.7, is sponsoring its annual "2 Seconds Is Too Long" campaign to remind adults that emergencies around water can occur in a split second.

"For years Fulton Homes has proudly sponsored 2 Seconds Is Too Long in hopes of raising awareness for families to watch their children around water," Doug Fulton, CEO of Fulton Homes, said. "Being vigilant with children around water, teaching them to swim, having a pool fence and having an adult who knows how to preform CPR are all critical for protection against drowning and near drowning accidents. Drowning is a harsh reality in Arizona, and we want to continue doing everything we can to prevent another family tragedy."

The start of the "2 Seconds Is Too Long" campaign coincides with the launch of the annual Fulton Homes Fence Patrol program, which awards pool fences to families in need throughout the summer.
