Blaine Domino’s Pizza and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) are teaming up with the Coon Rapids Fire Department to promote fire prevention during Fire Prevention Week (Oct. 7-13).
On Sunday, Oct. 7 and Thursday, Oct. 11 from 5 to 8 p.m., anyone who orders a Domino’s pizza may be randomly selected and surprised at the door when their pizza arrives aboard a fire engine.
If the smoke alarms in the home are working, the pizza is free, according to Coon Rapids Fire Marshal Todd Williams.
If the smoke alarms are not working, the firefighters will replace the batteries or install a fully functioning alarm, Williams said.
“Fire safety is vitally important,” said Bill Graves, Blaine Domino’s Pizza franchise owner. “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.”
Fire Prevention Week is a great time of year to change the batteries in smoke alarms, according to Todd Williams.
“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 working 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.
NFPA has been the official sponsor of Fire Prevention Week since 1922.
According to the National Archives and Records Administration’s Library Information Center, Fire Prevention Week is the longest running public health and safety observance on record. Visit www.firepreventionweek.org for more safety information.
