Dominos(1)Members of the South Baldwin (PA) Volunteer Fire Department will be helping deliver pizzas this weekend. As part of a joint safety project, the South Baldwin fire company, Domino's Pizza, and NFPA, are teaming up to honor the tradition of spring cleaning by reminding customers what they can do in the home to stay fire safe.

According to a report on YourSouthHills.com, members of the fire company will be working with Domino's this weekend, as they deliver fresh batteries and new smoke alarms along with chicken wings, pizza and pasta to area residents.

"We love it. It's awesome, especially seeing their faces," said fire company President and 1st Lt. Chad Hurka. "When they usually see us, they think something's wrong or we're asking for money."

When the handful of firefighters arrive at a home with a delivery, they also will check smoke alarms to ensure they're working, assistant Chief Dan Ridenour said. If all of the smoke alarms in the home are working, customers will receive $5 off their order. If alarms are not working, firefighters will replace batteries and provide residents with new smoke alarms.

We'd like to hear about other fire companies teaming up with Domino's. Please tell us about it in the Comments section below.
