Honolulu Fire Dept.

The mission of the Honolulu Fire Department today is the same as it was in 1850, to save lives and to protect property. However, today the department protects the entire island of Oahu (the City and County of Honolulu), with a fire fighting force of over 1,000 fire fighters. The Honolulu Fire Department is presently the 16th largest fire department in the United States.
