    October is Fire Prevention Month and the theme is “Learn the Sounds of Fire Safety!” Is there a beep or a chirp coming from your smoke or carbon monoxide alarm? What does it mean? Knowing the difference can save you, your home, and your family!

    Make sure everyone in the home understands the sounds of the smoke and carbon monoxide alarms and knows how to respond.  Learn the sounds of your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms by checking the user guide or search the brand and model online.

    The Bismarck Fire Department has several safety tips to help you “Learn the Sounds of Fire Safety.”

    • A continuous set of three loud beeps—beep, beep, beep—means smoke or fire. Get out, call 9-1-1, and stay out
    • A single chirp every 30 or 60 seconds means the battery is low and must be changed
    • All smoke alarms need to be replaced after 10 years

    The Bismarck Fire Department wants you to make sure everyone in the home knows the sounds of fire safety. For more details visit www.bismarcknd.gov/fire
