Trick-or-treaters can get both delicious candy and fire station tours on Halloween.
According to a release from the Chattanooga Fire Department, the events will “provide a safe, enjoyable Halloween experience for area children” from 6 to 8 p.m. at all 20 local fire stations.
On Tuesday night, families and children can get an up-close view of fire trucks, chat with firefighters and enjoy candy while supplies last.
Officials also offered Halloween safety tips for those who are trick-or-treating:
—Use face paint instead of masks. Loose-fitting masks can obstruct a child’s vision.
—Make costumes short enough to avoid tripping.
—Look for “flame-resistant” labels on costumes, masks, beards and wigs.
—Never let children under the age of 12 go trick-or-treating or cross the street without supervision from an adult.
