Fire District 6 hands out candy, offers Halloween tips

By Paul Suarez, Columbian web producer



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.
