Domino's® and the National Fire Protection Association Join Forces to Deliver Fire Safety Messages
During Fire Prevention Week (
Customers who order from participating Domino's stores throughout the U.S. during Fire Prevention Week may also be surprised when their delivery arrives accompanied by a fire engine. If the smoke alarms in the home are working, the pizza is free. If the smoke alarms are not working, the firefighters will replace the batteries or install fully-functioning alarms.
"Every year, Domino's stores look forward to teaming up with their local fire departments and the NFPA to spread fire safety messages in a fun and unexpected way," said
NFPA statistics show that the number of reported U.S. home fires in 2018 is half of that reported in 1980. However, the death rate per 1,000 reported fires has remained steady, reflecting the continued challenges of safely escaping today's home fires.
"In a typical home fire, you may have as little as one to two minutes to escape safely from the time the smoke alarm sounds," said
Fire Safety Tips from Domino's and NFPA
- Make a home escape plan with your family. Draw a map of your home, showing all smoke alarms and exits.
- Plan two ways out of each room (usually a door and a window) and a path from each to the outside.
- Make sure at least one smoke alarm is installed on every level of the home, in each bedroom and near all sleeping areas. Push each smoke alarm's test button monthly to ensure it is working.
- Pick a meeting place outside of your home where everyone will gather in the event of a fire.
- Plan and practice your home escape plan at least twice a year.
