Elections 2020

Regardless of political party, HFFA and the IAFF work with decision-makers to improve the lives and livelihoods of its members — selecting the candidates who will have our backs. It is our duty at HFFA to ensure that these candidates have earned our endorsement.

Candidates must understand our issues and will work with HFFA on important labor matters including collective bargaining rights; pay raises, funding for personnel such as staffing/overtime, employee retirement, training and equipment as well as have a strong commitment to increasing safety for fire fighters and the public.

Our Fill the Boot has gone virtual!

We urge all residents and visitors to adhere to COVID-19 safety protocols to keep yourself, your family and our first responders healthy and ready to respond.

Are you 2 weeks ready?

The hurricane season for the Central Pacific, where Hawaii is located, is from June 1 to Nov. 30, with the peak usually occurring from August to September. Make sure you have at least 2 weeks of necessities in your emergency kit, including sanitation supplies to prevent possible COVID-19 transmission in evacuation shelters. Shelter in place, but if you live in a shoreline area or near high surf, EVACUATE WHEN ORDERED.

Visit the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency (HIEMA) for more information. Download the 2WeeksReady Brochure and have these items ready in case of emergency.
