Online sweepstakes to recognize U.S. fire departments during Fire Prevention Week
In honor of Fire Prevention Week™, October 4-10, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and Domino’s are teaming up to launch an online sweepstakes that helps thank and recognize local U.S. fire departments for their year-round efforts to keep the public safe from fire and other hazards.
“Fire departments work tirelessly to keep their communities safe from fire and other emergencies, often putting their own health and safety on the line to help protect others,” said Lorraine Carli, Vice President of Outreach and Advocacy at NFPA. “This year in particular has presented unique challenges for fire departments, who have served on the frontlines of the pandemic.”
NFPA and Domino’s encourage any and all individuals to nominate their local fire department for submission into the sweepstakes. Fifteen fire departments will be randomly selected and receive a $100 eGift card from Domino’s. Nominations must be submitted online by September 30th[MS1]; winners will be officially announced during Fire Prevention Week.
“People want to express their thanks and appreciation to first responders, but they often don’t know how. This year’s Fire Prevention Week sweepstakes serves as a simple but important way to do just that,” said Carli.
NFPA has been the official sponsor of Fire Prevention Week – the oldest public health observance on record – for more than 95 years. This year’s theme is “Serve Up Fire Safety in the Kitchen!™,” which focuses on cooking safety; cooking equipment is the leading cause of U.S. home fires and home fire injuries.
