Mystic, CT - All active police, fire, EMT and ambulance personnel will receive free Museum admission during Safety on Sea & Shore Weekend at Mystic Seaport Saturday and Sunday, May 19-20, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Free admission will be extended to all first responder personnel with proper identification as a way of saying “thank you” for their dedicated community service. Family members of personnel will receive the Museum’s discounted group admission rate: adult $19; youth (ages 6-17) $10.50; and free for children ages 5 and under.

First Responders Weekend recognizes the work of present day emergency personnel, and celebrates the people, methods, and vehicles involved in maritime rescues in the 19th and early 20th centuries.

Plans for the weekend include: hands-on activities such as a bucket brigade, a fire hose competition, a breeches buoy rescue demonstration; historic apparatus on display including antique fire engines and a horse-drawn ambulance; and dog rescue demonstrations by K9 police dogs and the New England Newfoundland Dog Club.
