At Fulton Homes, there’s a strong focus on family and community, and as part of this Fulton Homes has always been a proud proponent for Water Safety in the Phoenix area. Our Two seconds is too Long campaign has helped build awareness of the risks families face with pools or other open water.
The first protection against the tragedy of children drowning is a secure pool fence. In response to that, Fulton Homes started its Fence Patrol six years ago. This summer is Fulton Homes 7th Annual Fence Patrol. Fulton Homes has teamed up with KMLE Country 108 FM radio and Ironman Pool Fence to award selected Valley families in need with a free pool fence including installation. The fences are specifically designed to meet city codes for optimum safety.
Over the last seven years, Fulton Homes Fence Patrol has helped hundreds of people equip their homes with barriers to help prevent youngsters from falling into the pool. The company also supports the Valley of the Sun YMCA, providing swimming lessons to disadvantaged youths who learn valuable life skills, including personal safety and growth, stroke development, rescue and water sports.
Interested parties in the Fulton Homes Fence Patrol have until August 7th, 2012 to nominate themselves or someone else for a pool fence, by logging on to www.kmle108.com and clicking on the Fence Patrol icon. For more information call (602) 452-1000 or go to our website and click on the “Fulton Foundation” link. And remember, a pool fence can and does save lives.
Fulton Homes has partnered with Kool-FM to recognize our country and those who serve it by sponsoring a rendition of “The Star Spangled Banner” every day at noon on the radio station. Three local high school bands showcase their performances of the anthem every month.
The school with the best performance of the three for that month receives a donation of $1,000 from Fulton Homes for their music department.
Fulton Homes is pleased to support a sense of patriotism while at the same time providing some additional funds for high school music departments across Metropolitan Phoenix. With the diminishing resources for non-academic areas such as music and art, this donation can provide much needed dollars for updating equipment and purchasing new music.
Desert Vista High School in the Tempe Union High School District was awarded this month’s top honor. For more information on the award and some examples of local high schools performing, check out this link: http://kool.cbslocal.com/fulton-homes-noon-salute/
