For the seventh consecutive year, NFPA and Domino's Pizza are teaming up to make families safer during Fire Prevention Week.
In select markets, customers who order from participating Domino’s stores may be surprised when their delivery arrives aboard a fire engine. If all the smoke alarms in the home are working, the pizza order is free. If a smoke alarm is not working, the firefighters will replace the batteries or install a fully-functioning fire safety device in the home.
The first official pizza delivery was made at the home of the Puckett family, where their existing smoke alarms were working, but ones were needed and installed by the fire department.
Back at the station, the students got to go through a fire safety house, play with our new, interactive story book app, "The Case of the Missing Smoke Alarms", and share lots of hugs and high fives with Sparky the Fire Dog®. The festivities culminated with a pizza party at the fire station.
A tremendous thanks to the Detroit Fire Department for graciously hosting and participating in the event, and to all the great students who were so enthusiastic and well behaved. Last but certainly not least, kudos to Domino's for their active support of Fire Prevention Week each year, and helping communicate the extreme importance of working smoke alarms.
