Promoting fire safety with pizza

Wednesday, October 3, 2018

San Marcos Domino’s, located at 1290 Wonder World Dr., and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) are teaming up with San Marcos Fire Department to promote fire safety during Fire Prevention Week – Oct. 7-13. 

On Oct. 9 from 3-5 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,” Alan Murph, San Marcos Domino’s franchise owner, said. “We’re excited to partner with the NFPA and San Marcos 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 “Look. Listen. Learn. Be aware. Fire can happen anywhere.”

“Today’s home fires burn faster than ever,” Les Stephens, fire chief at San Marcos Fire Department, said. “From the time the smoke alarm sounds, you may have less than two minutes to escape a home fire safely. That’s why this year’s campaign theme is so important – having an escape plan as well as fully functioning smoke alarms are essential to safely escaping a home fire.”

Customers can call Domino’s in San Marcos at 512-392-7272 to place their order and be eligible for the fire engine delivery.

NFPA has been the official sponsor of Fire Prevention Week since 1922. According to the National Archives and Records Administration's Library Information Center, Fire Prevention Week is the longest running public health and safety observance on record. The president of the United States has signed a proclamation proclaiming a national observance during that week every year since 1925.
