NFPA and Domino’s are teaming up for the 11th year in a row to deliver fire safety messages and pizza during Fire Prevention Week (FPW), Oct. 7 -13, 2018
To make this year’s campaign a success, we’re encouraging fire departments to join forces with their local Domino’s store to implement the campaign in their communities.
Here’s how the program works:
- Partner with your local Domino’s store to participate in an easy-to-execute program that will promote fire safety during FPW.
- Select a day and time period (usually 2-3 hours) to randomly choose one to three pizza orders to deliver aboard a fire engine. The participating Domino’s delivery expert will follow the fire engine in his or her car.
- When the pizza delivery arrives, the firefighters will check the home for working smoke alarms. If the smoke alarms work, the customer’s order is free (cost absorbed by the Domino’s store). If the smoke alarms aren’t working, the fire department will replace the batteries or install fully functioning smoke alarms (cost absorbed by the fire department).
This year’s FPW campaign theme is “Look. Listen. Learn. Be aware – fire can happen anywhere.” It highlights some of the most basic but critical ways people can protect themselves from fire at home, or anywhere else they might go. Partnering with Domino’s presents a fun and powerful way to reinforce this messaging.
