TUCSON, AZ (KOLD) - New York City first responders who treated victims of the September 11th attacks will be in Washington D.C. Tuesday to celebrate the signing of the 9/11 First Responders Health Care bill.

First, a group of first responders will make a pit stop at the office of Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords to pay their respects to the Tucson shooting victims.

They plan to pray alongside Giffords' staff for the victims.

After a moment of silence, the workers will all sign an American flag, box it up and present it to Giffords' chief of staff.

After their visit to Giffords' office, some 9/11 first responders will be guest at President Obama's State of the Union address.
