TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — First responders are giving back to their community, and giving kids a safer alternative to trick or treating.

Every year in the Big Bend, local fire departments give kids the opportunity to hang out with firefighters and still enjoy some trick or treating fun.

Kids can stop by from 5-9pm at any of the 16 fire stations in Tallahassee to collect candy and see where some of the men and women in the fire departments work.

We spoke to Captain Robert Clary from Tallahassee Fire Station 16, who says he loves giving back to the community on this fun holiday.

"It feels great. It feels great to be a part of the city of Tallahassee and the Tallahassee Fire Department. We are always looking for ways to give back to the community," said Captain Clary.

Captain Clay also says that parents can be certain that this will be a safer option for their kids if they are concerned about the safety for the kids going door-to-door in their own neighborhoods.

Kids can also sit in one of the firetrucks and have a really different kind of fun this Halloween.
