This issue honors the achievements of the men and women of the Swiss Firefighters Assocation in Switzerland and Liechtenstein.

The Swiss Firefighters Association represents the interests of both part-time and professional firefighters in Switzerland and the Principality of Liechtenstein. The idea of founding the association was first mooted in 1869 in Herisau in the canton of Appenzell Ausserrhoden. It was established in Aarau in 1870 as what was then still a club. The Swiss Firefighters Association is therefore celebrating its 150th anniversary in 2020. Today, supporting the interests of firefighters and exchanging knowledge are still important aims of the association. Furthermore, the Swiss Firefighters Association is a modern and innovative service company that works in a performance and results-oriented manner. It supports the cantonal associations, brings together the language regions of Switzerland and is politically neutral. Finally, the association serves as a link to the national partners in civil protection and is active internationally.

In all these activities, the Swiss Firefighters Association aims to support the fire departments in creating the best possible conditions and to help motivate young people to join them. Recruitment of firefighters is also becoming increasingly difficult as fewer and fewer people are signing up for voluntary and part-time work. This is especially the case when such work involves responsibility or is unpaid or remuneration is very low. Yet, voluntary and part-time work is part of the basis of our direct democracy.
