FDNY Ladder Company 13 and Santa Claus to pay a visit to NY Presbyterian Hospital’s Pediatric Unit and Burn Center

Members of FDNY Ladder Company 13 tomorrow will be at NY Presbyterian Hospital to bring some well-needed Christmas cheer to the children that will be spending the holidays in the hospital’s Pediatric Unit and Burn Center. The company will act as “Santa’s Sleigh,” by chauffeuring St. Nick to the hospital, placing him in the Tower Ladder, and following as he visits the children of the hospital. Members of the Fire Company will accompany him inside the building where they will visit the children and distribute gifts. Members of the FDNY have been visiting the children of NY Presbyterian for the last 18 years during the holidays, and will continue the tradition for many years to come.
