NEWPORT, Ky. — In recognition of Patriot Day, Newport Aquarium will offer free admission to first responders during Fire & Safety Weekend, Sept. 11-13.
“The men and women working in law enforcement, firefighting and first-response professions are our heroes,” said Eric Rose, executive director of Newport Aquarium. “Fire and Safety Weekend is a way Newport Aquarium can show them our appreciation for everything they do for our communities.”
Police officers, firefighters, EMTs, state troopers, correction officers, 911 dispatchers and other professionals involved in law enforcement, investigations and emergency response can receive free admission by presenting their professional credential, along with a valid government-issued photo ID, at the Newport Aquarium ticket window.
Also during Fire & Safety Weekend, family members and friends who accompany police, firefighters and first responders at the Newport Aquarium ticket window can receive discounts of $3 off adult and $2 off child (ages 2-12) admission. Family and friends must be present at the time the first responder orders their ticket in order to receive the Fire & Safety Weekend discount.
