Firefighters install 600th free pool fence

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- Firefighters know that pool fences can save lives. That's why they've been installing fences for families who can't afford them since 2004.

As Javier Soto explains, they're putting up fence No. 600 today.

Rich Bauer of the United Phoenix Firefighter Association said they install about 15 fences each month all year long.

The fences are free for families who qualify for them, and the program doesn't cost taxpayers a dime.
