Why are the firefighters on overpasses/bridges on I-25?

A group called the Federal Protection Agency (follow them on Facebook) provides escorts of fallen military personnel to and from Denver International Airport (DIA). Usually, they are taking the fallen member from Colorado Springs to DIA to be flown home.

Whenever this occurs, they notify all public safety agencies along the route of their estimated travel times. When possible, CRFD stands at to the overpasses to render honors as the fallen member passes through Castle Rock. Castle Rock police officers and Douglas County sheriff's deputies also join when available, and most public safety agencies pay their respects along the entire route.
