Get the stamp dedicated to the 40th anniversary of Civil Protection in Spain, from the Ephemerides series.
During the transition, civil protection tried to dissociate itself from the military connotations of yesteryear, and began an approach to the new needs of Spanish society. In 1980, Royal Decree 1547/80 of 24 July was published, which created again the General Directorate of Civil Protection and the National Civil Protection Commission as the coordinating and advisory body on this matter.
Two years later, in 1982, two events of great importance such as the World Cup and the visit of Pope John Paul II, served as a presentation of this organization. Civil protection is a public service aimed at the study and prevention of serious situations that may massively endanger the life and integrity of people, their property and the environment that surrounds them.
These last two years we have witnessed the importance of this service in events as dramatic as the global pandemic caused by COVID 19, or the recent eruption of the volcano on the island of La Palma.
In Civil Protection there are also volunteers, who work together with local authorities and other institutions, to ensure the safety of citizens.
The fundamental task of these people is to collaborate in the prevention and security of public events of all kinds, to help in emergency situations, large-scale accidents, catastrophes and also to be an active part in the information and training of citizens in matters of safety and security.
For all these reasons, in Correos we want to dedicate a stamp to this group so important and essential in our day to day. In it, an image of two women who belong to this body is reproduced, wearing the characteristic uniform and the legend is included: "40 years at the service of Spanish society".
