Local News

WEST JORDAN, Utah (ABC4 News) — Firefighters in West Jordan took part in delivering pizza to families on Wednesday to help promote fire safety week.

Domino’s Pizza, located at 5642 West 7800 South, and the National Fire Protection Association, teamed up with the West Jordan Fire Department on Wednesday to promote fire safety during Fire Prevention Week, Oct. 4-10.

During certain hours on Oct. 7 those who ordered a Domino’s pizza got lucky enough to have their pizza delivered by firefighters.

If your smoke alarms are working your order might just be free. If the smoke alarms are not working, the firefighters will leave batteries or new smoke alarms for the customer to install.

“Fire safety is extremely important,” said Kevin Kerchenko, Domino’s director of corporate operations in Utah. “We’re excited to partner with NFPA and the fire department for a program that not only promotes the safety of our friends and neighbors but rewards those who make fire safety a priority.”

This year’s Fire Prevention Week theme is “Serve Up Fire Safety in the Kitchen!”

“Cooking is the No. 1 cause of home fires and home fire injuries,” said Becky Steeneck, West Jordan Fire Department public education specialist. “There are a number of safety measures that individuals can take when cooking to greatly reduce the chances of a kitchen fire though, and we hope to raise awareness about them through our partnership with Domino’s.”
