BEDFORD – Bedford Domino’s, located at 1605 M St., and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) are teaming up with the City of Bedford Fire Department to promote fire safety.
On Oct. 5 from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m., anyone who orders a Domino’s pizza may be randomly selected and surprised when their pizza arrives aboard a fire engine. If the smoke alarms in the home are working, your pizza will be free. If the smoke alarms are not working, the firefighters will install a fully functioning alarm or replace the battery.
“Fire safety is extremely important,” said Michael Harding, franchise owner of Domino’s in Bedford. “We’re excited to partner with the NFPA and the City of Bedford 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 “Learn the Sounds of Fire Safety.”
“In a typical house fire, you may have as little as one to two minutes to escape safely from the time the smoke alarm sounds,” said John Hughes, fire chief at City of Bedford Fire Department. “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.”
Customers can call Domino’s in Bedford at 812-508-8484 to place their order and be eligible for the fire engine delivery.
