Domino's Delivering Fire Safety Tips
Teaming with NFPA, the pizza company is featuring tips on its boxes during the month of March, and some pizzas will be arrive on a fire engine.
Fire safety is much on the minds of the National Fire Protection Association and Domino's Pizza this month. They're joining forces for a fire safety campaign this month that focuses on changing smoke alarm batteries in connection with Sunday's "spring forward" change of the clocks. Domino’s is providing fire safety tips, including tips for preventing electrical fires in the home, on its boxes in participating markets nationwide.
"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."
The campaign reminds customers to change the batteries in their smoke alarms when daylight saving time begins The partners report customers who order from participating Domino's Pizza stores may have the order arrive aboard a fire engine. If all smoke alarms in the home are working, the pizza is free. If a smoke alarm isn't working, the firefighters will replace the batteries or smoke alarm.
"On average, seven people die in U.S. home fires per day," said Lorraine Carli, NFPA's vice president of communications. "Installing and maintaining smoke alarms is extremely important because they save lives, and we are thrilled to work with Domino's to remind homeowners to ensure theirs are working properly. Taking steps to avoid fire safety hazards in the home is also important, like replacing damaged or loose electrical cords and being sure to plug each electrical appliance directly into a wall outlet."
