Firefighters deliver pizza and smoke detectors
MILWAUKEE - Several fire departments will team up with pizza parlors Wednesday night to ensure you have working smoke detectors in your home.
Area firefighters are “Delivering Fire Prevention,” a program of Safe Kids Southeast Wisconsin Coalition, the evening of Thursday, Oct. 24.
“The program is designed to increase awareness about the importance of having working smoke and carbon monoxide alarms in every home, while reminding homeowners to check alarms monthly and change batteries yearly,” according to Safe Kids Wisconsin.
Families with children age 14 and younger will be chosen at random to have their pizza delivered by a fire truck. If they have working alarms in their home, their pizza will be free, compliments of the pizza restaurant. Some families may receive a free carbon monoxide detector, and all families will receive fire prevention education from Safe Kids Southeast Wisconsin.
Fire departments and communities from four counties across Southeast Wisconsin are participating, including: Belgium, Cedarburg, Cudahy, Franklin, Fredonia, Germantown, Jackson, Kewaskum, North Prairie, Pewaukee, Port Washington, South Milwaukee, Wales/Genesee, Waubeka and West Bend.
