FLINT, Mich. - It's Fire Prevention Week and the Flint Fire Department worked to spread the message of fire safety at home Monday.
The department held a special event for first graders from Freeman Elementary at Flint Fire Station One.
Along with the fire department, the National Fire Protection Association, and Domino's were also on hand.
The kids learned about firefighting gear, developed a home escape plan, and even met Sparky the Fire Dog.
"Mainly, we want them to get used to being around firemen, ask them a lot of questions, see what the firehouse is about., check out our equipment. We are teaching them the safety features, like smoke alarms and what you should do,” said battalion chief Steve Cobb.
Also this week, Flint residents could get a free pizza.
This Friday, anyone who orders a pizza from the Domino's on Ballenger Highway could be selected to have their pizza delivered by a fire truck.
If the caller's home smoke alarms are working, their pizza is free.
The deal runs Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
