Coon Rapids Fire Department, pizza store team up for prevention project

Blaine Domino’s Pizza and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) are teaming up with the Coon Rapids Fire Department to promote fire prevention.

On Wednesday, April 18, from 5 to 8 p.m. anyone who orders a Domino’s pizza may be surprised at the door when their pizza arrives aboard a fire engine.

If all the smoke alarms in the home are working, the pizza is free.

If the smoke alarm is not working, the firefighters will replace the batteries and leave the home with a fully functioning alarm.

“Fire safety is vitally important,” said Bill Graves, owner of Domino’s Pizza in Blaine.

“We are thrilled to work with the NFPA and the fire department on a program to promote the safety of our friends and neighbors and to reward those who make fire safety a priority.”

This is a great time of year to remember to change the batteries in smoke alarms,, according to Fire Marshal Todd Williams of the Coon Rapids Fire Department.

“Functioning smoke alarms save lives, but many people forget to maintain the batteries,” Williams said.

“We are excited to be working with Domino’s Pizza to promote good fire safety precautions by rewarding residents who have properly installed and functioning smoke alarms with a free, delicious pizza.”

Customers can call the Blaine Domino’s Pizza store, located at 10625 University Ave. N.E., at 763-757-3030 to place their order and be eligible for the fire truck delivery.

Founded in 1960, Domino’s operates 9,742 franchised and company-owned stores in the United States and over 70 international markets.
