Fire District modifies Halloween plans

The Sisters-Camp Sherman Fire District has once again modified its traditional Halloween festivities due to COVID concerns. The Halloween carnival the Fire District hosts annually has been an opportunity for the Fire District to connect with youth and to provide fire safety education materials. The CDC and Oregon Health Authority have not addressed Halloween specifically within their published holiday guidance; however, the Fire District is trying to do its part to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, and therefore will not be hosting the typical Halloween event at the fire station again this year.

In lieu of that, the Fire District will deliver Halloween bags to local school-age children enrolled in pre-K through 5th grades. The Halloween bags will include important fire safety educational information for both parents and children and some fun holiday treats.
