According to the Arizona Department of Health Services, drowning is one of the leading causes of death in Arizona among children 1 to 4 years old. This alarming statistic is one of the reasons Fulton Homes, for the 12th consecutive year, is sponsoring the Valley’s most successful and recognized water safety programs.

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.

According to, just three months into the year two Valley children have drown and eight others had water emergencies. During the same time two adults drown and five others had to be pulled from a pool before life was lost.
