This stamp issue by Swiss Post pays tribute to two Swiss organizations: the Swiss Protection and Support Service and the Swiss Council for Accident Prevention, or bfu for short. The Swiss Protection and Support Service has been promoting safety in our country for 50 years.
Originally set up to protect the civilian population in wartime, its main mission today is to protect citizens in the event of disasters, making an invaluable contribution to Switzerland’s safety. The bfu is also dedicated to safety and protection. For 75 years, the Swiss Council for Accident Prevention has been improving safety on the roads, in sport, in the home and during leisure on behalf of the authorities.
