NFPA teamed up with Domino's yesterday to officially kick off our joint, 9th annual Fire Prevention Week program promoting the importance of working smoke alarms. Seventy-five second graders from Detroit's Amelia Earhart Elementary-Middle School were invited to the Detroit Fire Department's Engine 27, where they actively participated in fire safety lessons supporting this year's theme, "Don't Wait - Check the Date: Replace Smoke Alarms Every 10 Years". The kids were also treated to a visit from Sparky the Fire Dog and a pizza party. The event culminated in a send-off of Detroit firefighters and Domino's, who made the inaugural smoke alarm check and pizza delivery to a local family, reflecting Domino's nationwide effort to support Fire Prevention Week.

 

Here's how Domino's Fire Prevention Week program works: Customers who place an order from participating Domino's stores during Fire Prevention Week, October 9-15, are randomly selected to receive their delivery from the local fire department, who will conduct a smoke alarm check in the customer's home. If the smoke alarms in the home are working, the delivery is free. If they're not working, the firefighters will replace the batteries or install fully-functioning alarms.

 

A huge thanks to the Detroit Fire Department for all their support and enthusiasm in helping kicking off the Domino's program once again. And thank you to all the local Domino's and fire departments that team up each year to make this campaign an annual success. It's a fun, engaging way to educate residents about smoke alarm safety, and we truly appreciate your participation!
