Fulton Homes Fence Patrol Program
Returns for 15th Consecutive Year


Tempe-based homebuilder providing 15 pool fences throughout the summer



One of the Valley's most well-known water safety programs is returning for the 15th consecutive year.

Fulton Homes is launching its Fence Patrol program this month, which over the years has provided 15 free pool fences during the summer months for Valley residents in need. Fence Patrol highlights the importance of always watching children around water, and acts as a reminder that water emergencies can happen in seconds.

"We started our Fence Patrol program 15 years ago to put more protective fences around pools in hopes of making Valley families safer," Doug Fulton, CEO of Fulton Homes, said. "But, a fence is only a barrier. Watching children around water, teaching them to swim and having an adult who knows how to preform CPR are all critical for protection against drowning and near drowning accidents. Drowning is a sad reality in Arizona, and we want to continue doing everything we can to prevent tragedies from occurring."

The program, conducted in partnership with KMLE 107.9 and Ironman Pool Fence, 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 the Fence Patrol link under the slideshow. The first winner will be announced on April 21st.

This year the public will be able to make a direct monetary donation to Fence Patrol by clicking on the Fulton Homes Foundation link on the KMLE website.

The program comes at a crucial time. According to the Children's Safety Zone, which gathers statistics from local fire departments and hospitals, there have already been 10 water related incidents in the Valley this year. 3 of these incidents resulted in death, all of which were children 5 years old or younger. 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, which raises awareness to watch children around the pool and gives away free swim lessons.
