“Spring has arrived, and with spring cleaning comes a timely reminder to take steps to keep your home safe from the threat of fire,” said Chris Brandon, Domino’s Pizza spokesperson. “Domino’s delivers about 1 million pizzas each day – so we reach a lot of people in their homes, where fire safety begins. We are excited to work with NFPA to use our network of delivery experts to make homes across the country a little bit safer.”
According to NFPA, roughly two-thirds of home fire deaths happen in homes with no smoke alarms or no working smoke alarms. Domino’s is reminding customers that a great time to change the batteries in their smoke alarms is when daylight saving time begins in March.
“Spring is the perfect time for a refresher on fire safety tips that should be followed year-round to make home fires less likely to happen,” said Lorraine Carli, NFPA’s vice president of communications. “Keeping fire safety in mind when adding things to a to-do list, like cleaning a dryer’s lint filter after each load of laundry and keeping the stovetop clean and clear of clutter, will help prevent fires.”
