To make sure residents in their communities have working smoke alarms, firefighters in Harriman and Sweetwater are teaming up with Domino's Pizza.

Monday evening, Harriman firefighters followed pizza delivery workers to random homes in their jurisdiction. If the person in that home had smoke detectors that worked, then Domino's gave them a free pizza for dinner. If the alarm didn't work, firefighters replaced it for free.

Domino's employees say the program is a great way to make sure people are protected.

"I think fire safety is very valuable. It's a very big thing that needs to be taken care of. Too many people have lives that are lost because they don't do a simple thing by changing the battery out of their smoke detector," said Domino's franchise owner Dominic Pitarro.

Firefighters and Domino's will be going door-to-door all week long. Sweetwater firefighters will be out Tuesday and Thursday, and Harriman firefighters will be delivering pizza and smoke detectors on Wednesday and Friday.
