Pizza and smoke alarms for 2014 FPW
NFPA and Domino’s Pizza are teaming up for the 7th year to deliver fire safety messages and pizza during Fire Prevention Week, October 5-11, 2014. To make this year’s campaign a success, we encourage fire departments to join forces with their local Domino’s Pizza store and implement the campaign in their communities.
Here’s how the program works: Fire departments can partner with their local Domino’s store and deliver free pizzas to residents during FPW. Ideally, the program is executed over one or two days for an estimated one-hour time frame, with the goal of making approximately two deliveries in the local area.
The deliveries will be made aboard a fire truck from the local station. The participating Domino’s Pizza delivery expert will follow in his or her car with the pizza order.
When the pizza delivery arrives at the customer’s home, the firefighters will check the home for working smoke alarms. If the smoke alarm works, the customer’s order is free. If the batteries are dead, the fire department will supply the customer with new batteries.
As this year’s FPW campaign theme, "Working Smoke Alarms Save Lives: Test Yours Every Month!" focuses on the importance of working smoke alarms, partnering with Domino’s presents a fun but powerful opportunity to reinforce the campaign’s messages and help make residents safer from fire.
While local Domino’s franchises are asked to contact fire departments to initiate the program, fire departments should also feel free to reach out to Domino’s.
