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.
