NEW YORK (AP) - A New York City firehouse is celebrating Take Our Children to Work Day by opening its doors to four boys who lost a parent on the Sept. 11 terror attacks.
The boys, ages 9 to 11, will learn how to use firefighting equipment and will get a tour of Engine Company 162 in Queens. Then they will join the firefighters in preparing lunch and eating it.
The tour Thursday is organized by Tuesday's Children, a nonprofit organization that provides services to people who lost a loved one in the terror attacks.
Terry Sears, the executive director of Tuesday's Children, said that almost 30 other New York-based businesses also will welcome children of Sept. 11 victims to mark Take Our Children to Work Day.
