In 2018, the USPS issued a stamp to honor first responders.  It is the fast acting skills of law enforcement, paramedics, and firefighters that make these individuals our heroes when faced with emergency situations.  An often overlooked example is forest fires.
 
When a wildfire is reported, law enforcement takes quick action to close roads and evacuate towns.  They keep ahead of the fast-moving fires to make sure n otown will be caught unaware.
 
Paramedics rush to treat civilians and other emergency personnel with injuries.  Some of their vehicles are equipped to travel off-road so they are able to reach those caught in the blaze.
 
Many times, smokejumpers are first on the scene of a forest fire.  Smokejumpers are firefighters who have been specially trained to jump from planes to remote parts of a forest.  They work to control the flames and stop the fire's spread by digging trenches, cutting down trees, and sometimes even starting counter fires.
 
First responders work together to tackle many different situations to help keep citizens safe.  The First Day of Issue Ceremony for this stamp took place in Missoula, Montana, where the largest US smokejumper base is located.  This stamp is just one way to give first responders the recognition they deserve.
