Pool Barrier Installation With Firefighters Local 493



     This month we teamed up with the United Phoenix Firefighter’s local 493 and Arizona Pool Fence, to help the Herman family install a much-needed pool fence. It was a delight to see the kids enjoy the new fence and learn about pool safety.  

     As a reminder, it is important to watch your children around pools. In this video Firefighter Tim Knobbe will walk you through pool safety and the importance of pool fences, especially around children.
