Beginning in the fall of 2007, Dixon Fire Department began conducting an annual pizza drive during Fire Prevention Week. Working with local pizza vendors and their delivery personnel, members follow the pizza deliverers to a home that has ordered a pizza. Once the homeowners grant permission, members check the home for working smoke detectors on each floor including the basement.
If the homeowners have working smoke detectors they are given a gift certificate to apply towards their next pizza purchase. Should the homeowners not have working smoke detectors, we give them batteries or have detectors available for purchase.
