Smokejumping was developed in the late 1930s as a means to quickly reach fires in remote road-less areas for initial attack. The primary mission of a smokejumper is fighting fire! Along with parachuting, smokejumpers may be delivered to fires via helicopter, by vehicle or on foot. Smokejumpers are considered a national resource and are occasionally deployed as a 20-person crew throughout the United States.
