Fence Patrol Gives Grandparents of One Foster
and Three Adopted Special Needs
Children a Free Pool Fence

Fulton Homes helps keep the Schwenck family safe

Schwenck Fence Patrol Winner


Fulton Homes has awarded a Chandler family a free pool fence to keep their four special needs children safe.

Ed and Mary Schwenck's daughter is moving back in with them while her husband, who is in the Army, is deployed in South Korea. She has adopted three special needs children and is currently the foster mom to one special needs child, all between the ages of four and eight. Because one of the kids is still in foster care, the Schwenck's house needs to be inspected for safety. Ed fears that because there is no pool fence, they won't allow his daughter's foster child to live there. Funds are tight for Ed, a Veteran, now working for Tempe School District and Mary whose income is limited to disability payments. Affording a pool fence hasn't been a reality for them.

"Fence Patrol provides families who need a protective pool fence the means to get one" said Fulton Homes CEO Doug Fulton. "In three out of four child drownings, the child was seen less than five minutes before tragedy struck. Water safety goes beyond the fence to swimming lessons and CPR classes for adults which are just as important and can also mean the difference between life and death."

Now in its 15th consecutive year, Fulton Homes Fence Patrol highlights the importance of always watching children around water, and acts as a reminder that water emergencies can happen in seconds. The Fulton Homes Fence Patrol program is conducted in partnership with KMLE 107.9 and Ironman Pool Fence. The public is encouraged to nominate someone they know that needs a pool fence by visiting KMLE 1079.com and clicking on the Fence Patrol icon.

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. For more information, call 602-452-1000.
