To kickoff National EMS week, Monroe County is offering free admission to the Seneca Park Zoo for all Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) workers who live or work in Monroe County and up to three of their immediate family members on May 14 and 15.

“We can’t thank our first responders enough for all they do to help save lives,” said Monroe County Executive Adam Bello. “We are pleased to offer two free days of fun at our Seneca Park Zoo for EMT workers and their families as a way to thank them for the tireless efforts throughout the pandemic and beyond.”

All EMT workers must show proper ID at the zoo entrance in order to participate. National EMS Week is celebrated May 15-21 this year. The week celebrates and thanks all who work in the EMS field for ensuring the health, safety and well-being to our communities.

“During a time when our first responders were entirely focused on the urgencies presented by the pandemic, hundreds of thousands of people found solace here at the Zoo, in what felt like a return to ‘normal’ as they met up safely with friends and family and shared laughter,” said Pamela Reed Sanchez, President and CEO of the Seneca Park Zoo society. “We are honored to be able to thank them for their sacrifices by giving them those same experiences.”
