FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Nothing in life is free but for people living in Fort Myers, dinner could be free if they order from Domino's on Thursday. The South Trail Fire Department has teamed up with Domino's to help homeowners stay safe during fire prevention week.
A smoke alarm could be the difference between life and death. If your smoke alarms are working properly, it could mean free pizza for you and your family.
Protecting her family and keeping them safe from the danger of fires is the number one priority for Sissy Doyle.
"I've gone in and put in extra smoke alarms that maybe weren't necessary but you can't replace a life," said Doyle.
On Tuesday, Doyle received a surprise visit from the South Trail Fire Department when she placed an order for her afternoon pizza.
"Most of the fire deaths occur in homes without working smoke alarms so its so important to have every home protected by a working smoke alarm," said Christie Knudsen, public information officer, South Trail Fire Department.
Dominos is teaming up with the men and women of South Trail for fire prevention week. If your smoke alarms are working, you could get a free pizza.
"If their smoke alarms are not working, we will provide them with a working smoke alarm," said Knudsen.
Doyle lost her childhood home in a fire when she was 14 so having a working smoke alarm is an important message she wants to pass along.
"This is a great opportunity for homeowners to just go in and double check all their fire extinguishers and smoke alarms," said Doyle.
For this project, Domino's is providing the pizza and the South Trail Fire Department has money put aside for their fire prevention programs. The truck is only used if its not needed for another call. Warning homeowners of fire danger is why the men and women of the fire department are making surprise house calls.
"People don't realize how very quickly fire grows and what limited time you have to escape," said Knudsen.
The free pizza smoke alarm inspections will continue Thursday. The South Trail Fire Department will be delivering pizzas from 4 p.m. until 5 p.m.
