Kids looking for tricks and treats in the Felida, Salmon Creek and Hazel Dell areas on Halloween night can stop by a Fire District 6 station for candy and glow bracelets.

Firefighters with the district will be handing out candy from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Hazel Dell Fire Station, 8800 N.E. Hazel Dell Ave.; Salmon Creek Fire Station, 1200 N.E. 134th St. and Felida Fire Station, 11600 N.W. Lakeshore Ave.

According to a district news release, glow bracelets will go to kids who do not have a light or something reflective on their costumes.

The district says trick-or-treaters should carry a flashlight for lighting, glow sticks and a reflective costume or bag so they can be easily seen. Parents should accompany trick-or-treaters, examine candy before it is eaten and watch out for costumes with items that could be a trip hazard, a district release said.

The district also says folks should clear the walkway to their door and move lit pumpkins out of the way.
