These are fantastic, but can we also chronicle what professions/activities are being recognized:

Lifeguard
Paramedic
Firefighter
Nurse
Ski Patrol/ Mountain rescue
and then...

Nuclear technician?
uhm...
Laser soldier?
Bomb squad?

Oh wait, I can google "technisches hilfswerk".

Okay. Technical relief.

That clears that up...

Hahaha "laser technician!" Good idea - I'll put in some translated captions.

Hahhah, I wondered about the last one too. And I still don't get it. Even though I'm German.
