“From recent tornados in the Southeast and wildfires in the West, to the tragic events at Virginia Tech, and the wrath of Hurricane Katrina, our first responders regularly risk their lives to protect property, uphold the law and save the lives of others,” said Senator Wayne Allard (R-Colorado) in June of 2007 when he introduced a resolution to Congress to designate September 25th as National First Responders Day. “Designating September 25th as National First Responder Appreciation Day provides an opportunity for Americans to honor first responders for their contributions, sacrifices and dedication to public service,” finished Allard.
The Distinctive Inns of New England have been honoring under-recognized groups with special packages throughout 2014. First pastors and church personnel, then farmers, then nurses and health care givers, and now first responders are being honored throughout the month of September as members of the Distinctive Inns of New England extend National First Responders Day to the whole month of September.
Whether you work as an emergency medical tech, firefighter or on a crime-stopping detail, here’s what’s in store for first responders who visit DINE properties in September. Each participating inn will require proof of employment or volunteer activity via a badge, paycheck stub or letter. Also, be sure to mention that you saw this offer on the Distinctive Inns of New England blog before booking a reservation. Lastly, sorry but these offers cannot be combined with any other discount, coupon or gift certificate.
