Certified rescuers and fire and law enforcement professionals work so hard every day to keep citizens safe, and their sacrifices often go unappreciated and without the proper attention they deserve. As a way to give back to those who sacrifice so much for the greater good, Knott’s Berry Farm Theme Park would like to give active fire and police professionals the opportunity to enjoy some of the simple pleasures in life we take for granted—innocent fun and uncontrolled laughter with family and friends.
If you are a firefighter or police officer, you can get more information about the Fire and Police Recognition Days special, and how to purchase tickets at the Knott’s Berry Farm Theme Park website.
