Maricopa County is off to set a record for spring drowning responses. The common denominator in most of these calls is lack of supervision and lack of a pool fence barrier in working order and that is up to city code.
The United Phoenix Firefighters Association would like to remind everyone that there is the “Adopt-A-Pool Fence” program in place. Hundreds of thousands of dollars were raised by the group solely to put free barriers in the backyards of people who qualify financially.
For more information on free pool fences or to get an application, go to www.SaveRKids.org or contact the Adopt-A-Pool Fence director, Capt. Rich Bauer ,at (602) 363-6129.
