Safety and pool barriers are key in preventing drowning of children in swimming pools. As they have in past years, SRP, the Phoenix Firefighters Association and Valley of the Sun United Way have come together to support the Adopt-a-Pool-Fence Program. This program has been going on since at least 2001 and has offered a way for safe pool fences to be installed for hundreds of Arizona Valley families who otherwise could not afford to buy a pool fence themselves. If you live in the Phoenix Arizona area, have a pool but do not have a pool fence, check out the Adopt-a-Pool-Fence Program’s website at http://www.saverkids.org to see if you may qualify for a free fence.
And if you yourself are doing ok economically in this economy, consider donating to this good cause that helps to keep kids from drowning in our state. You can also call 602-277-1500 for more information about the program, or to make a donation.
