BISMARCK, ND - The Bismarck Fire Department is inviting the community to participate in Fire Prevention week this week.

The National Fire Protection Association warn you may have as little as 2 minutes to escape a house fire from the time a smoke alarm sounds, so firefighters recommend to plan and practice a plan of escape in case of an emergency.

They also recommend smoke alarms be placed in every bedroom and to test them every month.
