Pool Barrier Requirements

May 4 1991 is an important date.  If your pool was built before this time then the restrictions are less stringent due to grandfathering.  All pools built after are subject to the all pool fence requirements.

The City of Phoenix requires pools to have an approved fence around them to prevent a child from drowning. For additional information on City of Phoenix Fire and Building Codes related to pool barriers please click here: Pool Barrier Requirement

Did you know that you can contact the Fire Department to report a pool that is accessible due to a fence being down or a gate not functioning properly? You can contact the Phoenix Fire Department Fire Prevention Division at 602-262-6771 to report an accessible pool during normal business hours or you can call 602-495-5555 to report an accessible pool outside of normal business hours. A Fire Inspector will respond to secure the pool.

Have questions? Contact Louisa Ward for regulations in your city!

Notice from the Police Department

When you have lived at the same address for a number of years, you rarely pay any attention to your house numbers (address).

For Police Officers, EMS, and Fire that may be responding to your house in the event of an emergency, your house numbers are what they are looking for.

Make it a point to LOOK at your numbers to see if:
-All of the numbers are still there
-They are Large enough to be seen easily from the street
-Any landscape vegetation has grown over them limiting their visibility

If YOU can see them, so can Emergency Responders… Thank YOU!

Sidewalk fix is landowner’s responsibility

Be aware of how you or others treat the sidewalk in front of your house!  If it ever needs replacing, it will be your responsibility.

If someone gets hurt because of an unsafe sidewalk, the property owner is responsible for claims filed against the city.
If homeowners do the sidewalk repair themselves, it must be inspected and meet city specifications.

Dunkin’ Donuts Restaurants offer Free Parking, Donuts and Cups of Coffee

International Pay It Forward Day is Saturday, April 28, and to celebrate, Phoenix area Dunkin’ Donuts locations are launching a pay it forward-inspired program called “Sip a Cup, Share a Cup”.  From April 28th – May 27th (or while supplies last), all guests who purchase any size coffee at participating Dunkin’ Donuts Restaurants will receive a special Free Coffee Card. Guests are encouraged to pass the card along to “pay it forward,” covering the cost of someone’s next coffee.

Additionally, on Friday and Saturday, April 27 and 28, Dunkin’ Donuts will be paying it forward with free parking in select downtown Phoenix and Tempe locations for commuters, tourists and students, as well as passing out free donuts and coffee at the Phoenix Central and Tempe Mill light rail stations each morning.

Dunkin’ Donuts’ popular hot and iced coffees include three unique blends sourced from 100% Arabica beans from around the world; seven different options for flavor shots and four different flavor swirls. Dunkin’ Donuts sells more than 1.9 billion cups of hot and iced coffee globally every year.

International Pay It Forward Day is celebrated in more than 80 countries with the goal of creating a ripple effect of kindness. The idea is that small acts, when multiplied by millions of people across the globe, can literally change the world. For this year’s international Pay It Forward Day, the goal is to inspire more than 10 million acts of kindness.

Pay It Forward Suggestions:

  1. Pay for someone’s coffee
  2. Get the next person in line’s food, groceries, gas, etc.
  3. Give flowers or thank you card
  4. Help someone in need
  5. Give time/money to local charity
