McPherson Domino’s, located at 719 N. Main Street, and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) are teaming up with the McPherson Fire Department to promote fire safety during Fire Prevention Week (Oct. 7-13). On Monday, October 8th and Tuesday, October 9th from11am until 7pm, 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, their order is free. If the smoke alarms are not working, the firefighters will replace them or install new batteries.
“Fire safety is extremely important,” said Grant Claassen, McPherson Domino’s franchise owner. “We’re very excited to partner with NFPA and the 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 theme is “Look. Listen. Learn. Be aware. Fire can happen anywhere.”
“There are steps that people can take to reduce the chances of having a fire,” said Chief Wyssmann, McPherson Fire Department. “Look for places a fire could start – identify potential fire hazards and take care of them. Listen for the sound of a smoke alarm, as you only have a few minutes to safely escape a fire once they sound. And lastly, learn two ways out of every room. 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 McPherson Domino’s at 620-504-6050 to place their order and be eligible for the fire engine delivery.
