Cody Thomson joined the Advisory Council in 2012 to help bring awareness to drowning hazards other than pools. He lost his son Brenan to drowning in a canal close to his home in Gilbert. The event shook his family to its core. Since then, Cody has been active in highlighting safety needs around canals. He hopes his efforts will drive home builders to make changes to access points to canal banks. He also hopes that canal operators will add safety measures to aid in self-rescue in case of an emergency.
Cody lives in the southeast valley where he has been a real estate appraiser for the last 15 years. In addition to Brenan, Cody also has a son in elementary school and a daughter in high school. He loves to golf and travel.
