Firefighters take on temporary delivery jobs

Free pizza to homes with working smoke detectors

Domino’s Pizza has hired a new crew for a few delivery shifts next week.

And if they show up at your door, you may end up with a free pizza.

The Agassiz Fire Department is working in conjunction with Agassiz Domino’s, to promote Fire Safety Week. Several of the firefighters will be out on October 13 and 15, delivering orders to Agassiz residents in the District fire engine.

But there’s a catch.

The firefighters will ask to enter your home to check your smoke detectors. If they’re all in working order, your pizza is free.

If they’re not working, missing batteries, or even non-existent, you’ll receive a free detector. And the fire department will even offer to install it for you.

Domino’s has been partnering with fire departments across North America for a few years, and the results have been great, says Kevin Dobbs, manager of Domino’s in Agassiz.

“Anything that has to do with fire safety, we’re totally behind it,” he said. With delivery people visiting people’s home each and every day, he said it was a natural fit.

“We’re going there anyway,” he said.

The promotion is timely, as next week is Fire Prevention Week.

The tentative times for the firefighters’ deliveries are 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Thursday night and 11 a.m. until about 3 p.m. on Saturday.

They expect to give out about one pizza an hour, depending on how long it takes to check the smoke detectors and install ones where needed.

Those ordering pizza from Domino’s are given the option to have the firefighters visit, or a regular delivery driver.

The Agassiz Firehall will celebrate with an open house on October 15 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., including cake and activities.
