On Saturday, Oct. 13, when Courtenay residents in single family homes, duplexes and townhouses call Domino’s Pizza (581 Ryan Road) at 250-334-3333 between 5 and 9 p.m., they may find their pizza is delivered with the help of Courtenay’s firefighters.

Your working smoke alarm could be worth a free pizza

To celebrate Fire Prevention Week (Sunday, Oct. 7 to Saturday, Oct. 13), Domino’s Pizza and the Courtenay Fire Department are again partnering to reward Courtenay residents who have working smoke alarms in their homes with free pizza.

On Saturday, Oct. 13, when residents in single family homes, duplexes and townhouses call Domino’s Pizza (581 Ryan Rd.) at (250) 334-3333 between 5 and 9 p.m., they may find their pizza is delivered with the help of Courtenay’s firefighters.

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. Households chosen will be at random and as resources are available.

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

This is the third year the department has partnered with Domino’s Pizza to reward customers with the potential for a free pizza during Fire Prevention Week. Several fire departments in the Greater Victoria area have been doing the program for the last several years.

This year’s Fire Prevention Week theme is “Look. Listen. Learn.” It focuses on educating people about the importance of looking for places fires could start, listening for the smoke alarm and learning two ways out of every room. This important reminder along with ongoing education of the importance of having a working smoke alarm can and will save lives.

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 fire safety tips to remember are:

• Know two ways out of your house, and when a smoke alarm sounds, get outside and stay outside.

• Install smoke alarms outside each sleeping area and on every level of your home.

• Test your smoke alarm monthly. Replace the batteries annually.

• Replacing your smoke alarm every 10 years is recommended.
