Our Mission Statement
Who We Are
Arthur & Debbie Fox DeKarski Co-Founders and CEO
Art & Deb DeKarski, originally from Middlesex County NJ moved to Chandler, AZ in 2001. Art, a self employed Insurance Agent since 1994 and Deb, a licensed agent employed by Third Party Billing Administrator, quickly started their careers by selling Life/Health Insurance policies and assisting clients with their Life & Supplemental Insurance policies.
It quickly became apparent to Art & Deb through the News Media that Child Drownings in AZ were rising at an alarming rate. Although they do not have children of their own, Art & Deb believe that every child is everyone’s responsibility so in August 2010 Backyard & Pool Safety was created.
Knowing that all children deserve a chance in life & to be kept safe at all costs, Precious Guardians LLC, a Non-For Profit Foundation was formed in December 2012. Through channels such as Public Awareness, Media Broadcasts and Community Campaigns, Precious Guardians LLC goal is to accomplish “Zero Drownings”.
Through each dollar donated, the foundation will be able to provide fences to those families in need. We plan to accomplish this through Sponsors, Private and Corporate donations.

Bill Jasper/ Owner And CEO of Baby Barrier.com
Bill Jasper is the Owner and CEO of Baby Barrier and BabyBarrier.com. Baby Barrier is not only one of our Vendors and the supplier of all of our top quality mash pool fences and gates but he is here as part of the team that makes up Precious Guardians. Ten years ago Bill fell in love with the concept of what these pool fences are doing to help save the lives of children and and family members that need to be protected around their pools and water features. He was passionate about what he was about to embark on ten years ago and he is just as passionate about playing a big part in helping to save lives today.
It Makes complete sense that Bill would be here with Precious Guardians not only as a vendor but as someone to advise and teach people about pool safety. With his product and knowledge there is a 49 year safety record in place while using his products. Although no pool fence is a replacement for proper supervision for kids around water, Baby Barrier and their line of products has ZERO fatalities over those 49 Years. We are very happy to have Bill Jasper as part of our team here at Precious Guardians.
