Domino's® Partners with the National Fire Protection Association 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 aboard 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.
"The Fire Prevention Week program is a great way to educate customers about fire safety," said
NFPA statistics show that the number of U.S. home fires has been steadily declining over the past few decades. However, the death rate per 1,000 home fires that are reported to fire departments was 10 percent higher in 2016 than in 1980.
"These numbers show that while we've made significant progress in teaching people how to prevent fires from happening, there's still much more work to do in terms of educating the public about how to protect themselves in the event of one," said
Fire Safety Tips from Domino's and NFPA
- Learn two ways out of every room.
- Make a home escape plan. Draw a map of your home, showing all doors and windows. Discuss the plan with everyone in your home.
- Practice a home fire drill twice a year.
- Teach children how to escape on their own in case you can't help them.
- Close doors behind you as you leave – this may slow the spread of smoke, heat and fire.
- Once you get outside, stay outside. Never go back inside a burning building.
