EASTON, Pa. -

Some Lehigh Valley firefighters spent the day showing the ropes to the next generation of first responders.

Easton firefighters participated in Take Your Children to Work Day.

About two dozen boys and girls were on hand to take part in the activities. They got to climb a ladder truck and learned how to use fire extinguishers.

Then, they got an up close look at a helicopter at Heil Park.

This is the second year the Easton Fire Department has participated in Take Your Children to Work Day.
