The following announcement was provided by Domino’s:
Watertown Domino’s, located at 111 Arsenal St., and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) are teaming up with Watertown Fire Department to promote fire safety during Fire Prevention Week (Oct. 6-12). On Oct. 9 from 5-7 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. If the smoke alarms are not working, the firefighters will install fully-functioning alarms or replace the batteries.
“Fire safety is extremely important,” said Rabih Saroufim, Watertown Domino’s franchise owner. “We’re excited to partner with the NFPA and Watertown 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,”said Robert Quinn, fire chief at Watertown Fire Department. “Escape planning and practice can help you make the most of the time you have,giving everyone enough time to get out. Thesesteps 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 Watertown at 617-923-3030 to place their order and be eligible for the fire engine delivery.
