It's Fire Prevention Week, and this year's theme is know and practice your escape plan.
First responders hold an annual open house and parade for kids to learn more about fire prevention and how the department saves lives.
"We do know that our fire prevention message does reach the community and does have impacts, even when it's something simple as 'check your smoke detectors twice a year' to make sure that that stuff is happening. It's the simple things that I think the public sometimes may forget," said Capt. Shane Weltikol, Mandan Fire Department.
Fire fighters will visit classrooms all month long.
