Our Sizzling Safe Summer Pool Parties are free and open community events with the goal of reducing heat related ailments and deaths due to the intense Phoenix heat. In 2009 PRC was horrified to see the loss of human life due to the extreme heat. We asked ourselves what can we do, how in any way can we contribute to reducing heat related ailments and the loss of lives in not only our neighborhoods but in the City of Phoenix. We then launched the "Sizzling Safe Summer Campaign". The mission is to provide information, resources and activities that promote heat safety. We partnered with the City of Phoenix Parks and Recreation & Aquatics Departments to do 2 Pool Parties. Now today, it became a monster project with a monster goal with eight pools every Saturday in June and July. Proper swim wear is required to swim. Life Jackets are available for those who may not know how to swim. A DJ will blast great, clean, fun and family friendly music and an MC gets everyone moving and engaged. Appearances by the City of Phoenix Aquatics mascot “Buddy Bear” and performances by Kilali’s Polynesian Dance Revue make it for a FUN "Tropical Beach Party" environment.


Activities Include:

  • Water Basketball
  • Line Dance Session
  • Relay Races
  • Free Food
  • Water Safety/Swim Lessons information booth
  • Heat stress information booth
  • CPR Introduction information booth
  • Grass Skirt Line Dancing - ALOHA
  • And much more!


We are very proud of the success of our Sizzling Safe Summer Campaign so far and are looking for to providing more quality events for our communities. Thank you to all our partners BIG and small because without their help this would not be possible.

Come out and join us! Swim, eat and have FUN!
