FALLBROOK — Domino’s Pizza partnered with North County Fire Department to promote fire safety on Friday, October 30, just before Daylight Savings Time ended on November 1.
From 4 to 5 p.m. that day, anyone who ordered at Domino’s was surprised when their pizza arrived aboard a fire engine.
If all the smoke detectors in the home were working, the pizza was free. If the detectors were not working, the firefighters replaced the batteries and left the home with fully functioning detectors.
“Fire safety is vitally important,” said Shane Casey, owner of Domino’s Pizza in Fallbrook. “We are thrilled to work with the fire department on a program to promote the safety of our friends and neighbors and to reward those who make fire safety a priority.”
“Daylight Savings Time is a great time of year to change the batteries on your smoke detector,” said Bill Metcalf, chief of North County Fire. “Functioning smoke detectors save lives, but many people forget to maintain the batteries.”
“We are excited to be working with Domino’s Pizza to promote good fire safety precautions by rewarding residents who have properly installed and functioning smoke detectors with a free, delicious pizza,” he added.
