  • Smokejumpers provide aggressive initial attack and natural resource expertise, in an effort to preserve the American landscape for future generations.

Smokejumpers are ideally suited to responding to, and catching, fires in their early stages before they become large, complex and costly incidents. However, we have a broad range of capabilities that extends beyond initial attack.
