MISSOULA, Mont. — The United States Postal Service will release its forever stamp honoring first responders at a dedication ceremony on Sept. 13, 2018.
The stamp, which features three first responders racing into action, was designed to recognize "all first responders for their skill, dedication and uncommon bravery," USPS wrote in a news release.
The stamp includes, from left to right, a firefighter carrying an axe, an EMS worker, with the EMS Star of Life visible on her cap, upper arm and emergency bag, and a law enforcement officer shining a flashlight.
The dedication ceremony will held at the Montana Aerial Fire Depot and Smokejumper Center in Missoula, Montana.
The stamp was designed by artist Brian Stauffer, who worked with art director and designer Antonio Alcalá, and designer Ricky Altizer.
