All firefighters can stay at the hotel for $50 a night between Sunday and Thursday, with weekends being more expensive. They just need to present valid identification and an their International Association of Fire Fighters membership, or a recent pay stub.
“We would like to thank the brave men and women who fought the forest fires in British Columbia this summer during a record wildfire season,” said Michael Kim, the River Rock Casino Resort’s general manager.
He hopes the deal can help first responders relax and unwind.
Half of the proceeds from firefighters’ bookings will also go to the BC Professional Firefighters’ Burn Fund, up to a maximum of $5,000.
