Safe Kids and firefighters deliver fire prevention – and pizza

Don’t be alarmed if when you’re home next Thursday evening, Oct. 22, you hear the blare of fire truck sirens and see flashing red lights in your neighborhood. Firefighters may be responding to a call – or they may be delivering a pizza!

That’s because local fire fighters, pizza restaurants, Safe Kids Southeast Wisconsin Coalition, Safe Kids Wisconsin Coalition and State Farm Insurance are teaming up for the eighth annual “Delivering Fire Prevention” event. It’s a program designed to bring fire prevention education to local families in a fun and original way.

To find out if your community is participating, check out BlueKids.org/SafeKidsWI. If the fire department delivers your pizza and you have working smoke detectors, you’ll get a free pizza! If you have a smoke detector that isn’t working you will receive a free smoke detector. We even have a limited number of carbon monoxide detectors to give away. Everyone will receive fire prevention education materials from Safe Kids and a great experience.

For more information about Delivering Fire Prevention in southeast Wisconsin (Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Washington and Waukesha counties) call (414) 390-2178 or e-mail lklindtsimpson@chw.org. For statewide program information call (715) 843-1890 or e-mail lslavin@chw.org.

October is Fire Prevention Month. Don’t forget to change the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Learn more ways to keep your family safe from a fire by visiting BlueKids.org/SafeKidsWI.

Due to a high demand for pizzas, not all pizzas will be delivered by firefighters. Fire departments cannot deliver outside of communities they serve.
