[Boy 1] A police officer.
[Boy 3] I wanna be a football player.
[Girl 1] A teacher.
[Boy 2] Umm, a plane driver, and I also want to be umm a train driver and I wanna be a car driver...and I also want...umm, to be a football player and I wanna be a superhero.
[Boy 3] You can volunteer for...ah...hospital. A children's hospital. And then you can donate money.
[Girl 2] I would probably work hard to make money so then I could help...umm...the animal shelters and the homeless shelters. Because then...umm...we would have more people that are healthy and we would also save a bunch of people.
[Girl 1] I would probably make...umm..teach them about our presidents...maybe, and teach them how to read. I think that would be kind of nice to them.
[Boy 2] I want to be a pilot because... umm...I want to be a fireman pilot. Where those shooters come out and then it sprays out water.
[Director] (laughter off-camera) Is that your little brother?
[Girl 3] He's annoying.
[Girl 3] Well...give people some more. I'll give people some because I don't want to leave the hospital. I need to take care of the babies.
[Boy 3] Umm...I would probably buy cars and stuff for them. So they can get places where they want to go. Mexico...Orlando, Florida...but you'd have to be on a highway and that would take like a long time.
[Boy 1] Buy homes...buy food...
[Director] For yourself?
[Boy 1] No, for other people.
[Girl 2] I could raise money for the scientists and doctors to come up with a cure for a bunch of like viruses and stuff and sicknesses.
[Girl 1] I would put some books in...more books in...in the library and maybe get some more stuff for the classroom.

Sound the Alarm. Save a Life.
Joining forces to create safer homes in our communities.
Nita>> We are here today to install 1,000 smoke
alarms in the greater Bismarck Mandan
community so the goal of sound the
alarm is the general awareness raising
both for residents to know and be
reminded constantly because we come
become complacent about feeling safe in
our home and yet every day seven people
in the United States lose their lives to
Rosejean>> The Red Cross came here and
checked ours and did the replacements I
just want to say thank you we now have
everything up to date and have that
opportunity to make sure that there's
not going to be something devastating
that is going to be the outcome so the
service that's being provided I think is
wonderful for the neighborhood and the
city of Bismarck for that matter
Robert>> The biggest thing is one people need to be
notified so they can get out of the home
get out of the residence
that's that's the whole goal of having
smoke alarms so not only do we make sure
they had them we made sure that they
weren't too outdated make sure they were
working and then we did it took the
opportunity to have some education for
some folks about exit plans and exit
drills and what to do to get out
Amy>> Thank you to the American Red Cross for
keeping our families our pets and our
homes safe Gate City Bank is proud to
sponsor this event and provide a better
way of life than the communities we
The Health Of Our Community.
Making a difference with our community members.
Brent>> Our project is built around the idea
that we don't care what your reasons are
for not making to the dentists that can
be one of many reasons but our goal is
to take care of humanitarian relief of
pain and that's our mission and has been
for the last 17 years
Marsha>> The history of Red
River Valley dental access it started
with local dentists coming together
knowing the need of the community and
how many people needed to be served and
weren't getting served so they decided
to start up a little urgent care clinic
and it's been growing ever since
Brent>> Where do folks go that don't have a
dental home and for care that having a
problem and the logical place in many
cases is the emergency room at hospital
so we thought about how can we find a
location partner place where we can have
a clinic where we can get volunteer
dentists connected with those folks who
don't usually see the dentist
Matt>> I was just amazed at the
need being so close to
home I didn't realize that that kind of
need was out there and so it really opened
my eyes to what we could do
Jenn>> we see a lot of people with broken off teeth
like at the gum line and they don't know
what else to do we will remove the teeth
that are hurting them and then we try
and help them get referred to somewhere
that does do dentures and help them out
so Gate city's involvement with Red
River Valley dental access project helps
us to keep the cost lower to the
patients helps us keep the clinic
Marsha>> We're very grateful that Gate
City Bank could step up and help the
community keep this clinic alive
Jenn>> We owe Gate City
so much for what they've done and to
help the patients keep the cost down
because for a lot of patients thirty
dollars is a lot and we're not here to
make money but we're here to help [music fades]
