Mesa family wins free pool fence; find out how you can, too

Posted: Updated:

MESA, Ariz. -- Fulton Homes has teamed up with KMLE Country to give away 12 free pool fences to deserving families.

Javier Soto introduced us to the first winner, the Dinie family of Mesa.

"We intended to buy a fence with our tax return, but after Frank lost his job, we had to use the return on other essentials," Amy Dinie explained.

The Dinie family consists of Amy, Frank, and their four children: Michael, 10, Rachael, 9, Rebecca, 6, and Sarah, 2. With that many children and an inviting pool without a fence, Amy and Frank were anxious.

"At Fulton Homes, we believe that parents must remain vigilant in regard to watching their kids around water and a properly installed pool fence is essential," said Douglas Fulton, CEO of Fulton Homes, in a news release. "Drowning incidents can happen in a matter of seconds and they can happen to anyone. With four children in the mix, we understand how much a necessity a pool fence is and we are pleased to be able to provide one to the Dinie family.

Fulton Homes ad KMLE Country will be giving away 11 more pool fences in the coming weeks.
