    Do any Volunterr departments still exist in the State of Hawaii?

    Its my understanding that there are several (maybe as many as half the stations on the island) on the Big Island and possibly a couple of others on 1 or 2 other islands.

    I believe they are all part of the the county department for that island but operate as volunteer individual companies.

    A few that I could find for sure include:

    Laupahoehoe VFD (North Hilo area - Big Island)
    Kalaoa Volunteer Fire Company 7B (Kona area - Big Island)
    Paradise Park Volunteer Fire Company 10C (Puna area - Big Island)
    Waikoloa VFD (Waikoloa Village - Big Island)

    Looking at the USFA survey it appears that Hawaii has the second highest amount of career departments at 80%. You should move to Delaware at 97.8 volunteer departments. Just kidding good luck.
