Join NFPA® in celebrating the 100th anniversary of Fire Prevention Week™ (FPW). This year’s FPW campaign, “Fire won’t wait. Plan your escape™”, works to educate everyone about simple but important actions they can take to keep themselves and those around them safe from home fires.

Today’s homes burn faster than ever. You may have as little as two minutes (or even less time) to safely escape a home fire from the time the smoke alarm sounds. Your ability to get out of a home during a fire depends on early warning from smoke alarms and advance planning.

Smoke Alarm Awareness Activity

Graham Domino’s, located at 9805 224th St E in Graham is teaming up with Graham Fire & Rescue to promote fire safety during Fire Prevention Week (Oct. 9-15).

On Wednesday, Oct. 12 and Thursday, Oct. 13 from 1-5 p.m., anyone who orders a Domino’s pizza may be surprised at the door when their pizza arrives accompanied by Graham Fire & Rescue firefighters. Firefighters will check smoke alarms in the home, if they are working, Domino’s will provide a certificate for a free pizza. If the smoke alarms are not working, firefighters will install fully-functioning alarms or replace the batteries.

Graham Fire & Rescue wants to share these key home fire escape planning tips:

  • Make sure your plan meets the needs of all your family members, including those with sensory or physical disabilities.
  • Smoke alarms should be installed inside every sleeping room, outside each separate sleeping area, and on every level of your home. Smoke alarms should be interconnected so when one sounds, they all sound.
  • Know at least two ways out of every room, if possible. Make sure all doors and windows open easily.
  • Have an outside meeting place a safe distance from your home where everyone should meet.
  • Practice your home fire drill at least twice a year with everyone in the household, including guests. Practice at least once during the day and at night.

Customers can call Domino’s in Graham at 253-847-8393 to place their order for a chance to be randomly selected to have their pizza delivery accompanied by firefighters.

Due to the high demand associated with this event, Graham firefighters will not be able to go on every pizza delivery.
