~Jim Butcher, Blood Rites
Our local, all volunteer fire department turns the station house into a haunted house for the kids every year.  You pay a dollar and walk through to trick or treat at various stopping points inside.  We love it.  When you come back out you can explore the fire trucks, check out an ambulance, get free smoke detector batteries, and learn about fire safety in the fire safety demonstration trailer.  We love our fire department.
