Fire and police personnel who qualify for free admission include: firefighters, EMTs, police officers, state troopers, investigators, evidence technicians, firearms examiners, crime lab technicians, 911 dispatchers and correction officers and other employees of the aforementioned organizations.
The offer is also available for those working for national security organizations such as: the F.B.I., Homeland Security, Transportation Security Administration, National Security Administration, U.S. Customs, or U.S. Border Patrol.
Local, state and national safety and law enforcement personnel must show an identification card from their place of employment, along with a valid photo I.D. Badges, uniforms and fraternal and lodge cards will not be accepted as proof of service nor identification. Since volunteer firefighters don’t have official ID, we are asking for a letter stating that you have served as a volunteer, with approximate dates.
Free admission is limited to an individual with valid identification and will not be extended to spouses, children or friends, however there is no geographic limitation. No matter when or where you served, or where you currently live, you are free to take advantage of the offer.
