NFPA, along with its partner [Domino’s Pizza | http://www.dominos.com/], is honoring the tradition of spring cleaning by reminding customers what they can do in the home to stay fire safe. In participating markets across the country, Domino’s will utilize its pizza boxes to deliver fire safety tips throughout the month of March.
“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 | http://www.nfpa.org/categoryList.asp?categoryID=278] 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.”
