dpvfdlogoeditedDominosPizzaTwo local Houston area Domino’s locations and the National Fire Protection Association are teaming up with the Deer Park Volunteer Fire Department and Fire Marshals Office to promote fire safety during Fire Prevention Week Oct. 9-15.

On Oct. 11 from 3-7 p.m. anyone who orders a Domino’s pizza from the location at 301 Center St. 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.

The second location is in Spring and pizzas from that location will be randomly delivered by the South Montgomery Fire Department on Oct. 10 and Oct. 13.

This year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign theme is “Don’t Wait – Check the Date! Replace Smoke Alarms Every 10 Years.”
