In April 2009, we enjoyed a family vacation trip to Hawaii.
Among the many things we did, were of course, visits to some fire stations.

Honolulu Fire Department site

The Honolulu City & County Fire Department
provides services to the entire island of O'ahu.
There are 42 fire stations.
5 Battalions.
Protecting 596 square miles - 800,000 population.
The city of Honolulu is very dense and urban, while much of the rest of the island is very rural.
The Honolulu Fire Department was established by the King of the monarchy
around 1850, over 100 years before Hawaii became the 50th state in 1959.

Many apparatus have community names and other Hawaiian sayings on them.
