The Grangeville Smokejumpers is an organization that is committed to providing a professional level of fire management to public lands throughout the nation.  Since 1951, the Grangeville Smokejumpers have provided aerially delivered firefighters to wildfires across the United States.  Smokejumpers specialize in the use of parachutes and fixed-wing aircraft as a means for rapid deployment of resources to remote locations.  While smokejumping and fire management is their specialty, the jumpers have a wide range of skills and backgrounds that offer a diverse and highly adaptable organization that can fill any niche.
