Have a Working Smoke Alarm? You May be Rewarded with Free Domino's Pizza Delivered by Victoria Firefighters

To kick-off Fire Prevention Week (Sunday, October 4 to Saturday, October 10, 2015), Domino’s Pizza and the Victoria Fire Department are partnering to reward Victoria residents who have working smoke alarms in their homes with free pizza.

On Saturday, October 3, when Victoria residents in single family homes, duplexes and townhouses call Domino’s Pizza (1420 Quadra Street) at 250.405.2848 between 1pm and 5pm, they may find their pizza is delivered aboard a fire truck.

With the customer’s permission, firefighters will arrive by fire truck and inspect household smoke alarms to make sure they are working. Those with functioning smoke alarms will get their pizza for free.

If a home smoke alarm requires new batteries, the firefighters will provide and replace the batteries. The Victoria Fire Department may also arrange for a return visit to install a smoke alarm for residents who require and qualify for free installation.

This is the fourth year the Victoria Fire Department has partnered with Domino’s Pizza in Victoria to reward customers with the potential for a free pizza during Fire Prevention Week. Oak Bay, Esquimalt and Saanich Fire Departments are offering similar campaigns.

Fire Prevention Week:  Hear the Beep Where You Sleep - Every Bedroom Needs a Working Smoke Alarm

This year’s Fire Prevention Week theme is Hear the Beep Where You Sleep – Every Bedroom Needs a Working Smoke Alarm. Contrary to popular belief, the smell of smoke may not wake you. Serving as your nose when you are asleep, working smoke alarms can mean the difference between life and death of loved ones in the event of a fire.

Working smoke alarms give you and your family time to get out. Important smoke alarm safety tips to remember are:

  • Install smoke alarms in every bedroom, outside each sleeping area and on every level of your home.
  • When a smoke alarm sounds, get outside and stay outside.
  • Test your smoke alarms monthly. Replace the batteries annually.
  • Replacing your smoke alarms every 10 years is recommended.
