GIBSON COUNTY, Tenn. — The Gibson County Emergency Dispatch held a social distancing trunk-or-treat.

Cars drove by with kids inside in the Gibson County E-911 parking lot. First responders passed out candy in order to bring a since of normalcy during COVID-19.

Because of the pandemic, kids are not able to walk up to homes while trick-or-treating, so first responders brought it to them.

“Everybody has been cooped up in the house, in quarantine. We tried to find a way that people could get out and have trick-or-treating because people wasn’t going door-to-door,” said Johnathan Powell, a 911 dispatcher.

Organizers say this was the first trunk-or-treat by the Gibson County Emergency. They say they hope to continue having more events like these in the future.
