Anna Domino’s location and the National Fire Protection Association are teaming with the Anna Fire Department to promote fire safety during Fire Prevention Week, which begins Saturday and continues through Oct. 12.
On Oct. 6-8 from 7-9 p.m., Anna residents may be randomly selected and surprised at the door when a Domino’s pizza arrives aboard a fire engine. If the smoke alarms in the home are working, the residents will receive free pizza. If the smoke alarms are not working, the firefighters will install fully-functioning alarms or replace the batteries.
“Fire safety is extremely important,” Anna Domino’s franchise owner Steve Palmer said. “We’re excited to partner with the NFPA and Anna Fire Department for a program that not only promotes the safety of our friends and neighbors, but rewards those who make fire safety a priority.”
This year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign theme is “Not Every Hero Wears a Cape. Plan and Practice Your Escape!”
“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,” Anna Fire Chief Ray Isom said. “Escape planning and practice can help you make the most of the time you have, giving everyone enough time to get out. These steps can make all of the difference and we hope to raise awareness about them through our partnership with Domino’s.”
The Anna Domino’s location is at 807 S. U.S. Highway 75, suite 200.
