Domino’s® Pizza officially launched its 7th annual fire safety and pizza delivery campaign yesterday at the Detroit Fire Department with great success. The event kicked off Domino’s continued effort to reinforce the importance of working smoke alarms during Fire Prevention Week.

About forty students from a local elementary school were invited to help kick off the event, cheering on the firefighters as they left the station to make the inaugural pizza delivery.

The first official pizza delivery was made at the home of the Puckett family, where their existing smoke alarms were working, but additional ones were needed and installed by the fire department.

Back at the station, the students got to go through a fire safety house, play with our new, interactive story book app, “The Case of the Missing Smoke Alarms”, and share lots of hugs and high fives with Sparky the Fire Dog®. The festivities culminated with a pizza party at the fire station.

A tremendous thanks to the Detroit Fire Department for graciously hosting and participating in the event, and to all the great students who were so enthusiastic and well behaved. Last but certainly not least, kudos to Domino’s for their active support of Fire Prevention Week each year, and helping communicate the extreme importance of working smoke alarms.
