Company Inspection Program: Enforcing fire safety laws are an important role of the Honolulu Fire Department (HFD).  These laws are enacted so that we can ensure the fire hazards and unsafe practices we identify are eliminated and corrected.  No one knows better than fire fighter professionals that are much better to prevent a fire from occurring than to try to put one out. FPI0025BK
Respiratory Protection Standard Operating Guidelines: The Honolulu Fire Department (HFD) is committed to minimizing occupational diseases caused by breathing air contaminated with harmful dust, fog, fumes, mists, gases, smoke, sprays, or vapors.  This program shall be in compliance with Section 12-64-.1-1, Personal Protective Equipment of the Hawaii Occupational Safety and Health Division (HIOSH) standards that in turn has incorporated the 29 Code of Federal Regulations 1910.134 Respiratory Protection standards FF5134BK

Infectious Disease Exposure Control Standard Operating Guidelines: The Honolulu Fire Department recognizes the potential exposure of its fire fighters, in the performance of their duties, to infectious diseases.  To minimize the risk, the Honolulu Fire Department implements a program as described in this Honolulu Fire Department Infectious Disease Exposure Control Standard Operating Guidelines (HFDIDEC SOGs).  These guidelines detail the exposure control program and shall have equal force and effect as the Rules and Regulations, Policies and Procedures, Records Manual, and other official Department manuals EMS1090BK
Helicopter Standard Guidelines: This article contains the procedures, addresses Department´s helicopter operations, and identifies the Department´s obligations and duties, while also providing guidelines to ensure the safety and health of its members.  Should situations arise that are not addressed in this SOG, the pilots shall exercise sound judgment and initiative based on their experience and training FSR0073BK.
HazMat & WMD Awareness for the First Responder: First Responder Awareness Level trained personnel are individuals who are likely to witness or discover a hazardous substance release and who have been trained to initiate an emergency response sequence by notifying the proper authorities of the release.  They would take no further action beyond notifying the authorities of the release.  First responders at the Awareness Level shall have sufficient training or shall have had sufficient experience to objectively demonstrate.
Farm Family Emergency Response Program: This program is designed to teach farm family members what actions they should and should not take when they discover an injury emergency on their farm.
Goals of the program
1. Teaches people how to keep themselves physically and emotionally safe during a rescue.
2 It is concerned with what actions will have a positive effect on the well being of the victim.
3. Teaches people how to summon additional help.
4. Reinforces the importance for farm people to be trained in First Aid and CPR FSR0074BK.

Fire Training CD Roms
Building Construction Fire Restive “NFA Principles” (3CD-ROM) TK0081
This training course addresses the need for fire service Incident Commanders (IC’s) to fully understand building construction, methods of construction, materials used in building construction, and fire-resistance requirements in order to conduct fire scene operations safely and make sound strategic decisions.  The intent of this course is to prepare IC’s, Company Officers (CO’s), Safety Officers, and others to read a building correctly and to use this knowledge in their decision-making process.
Fire Prevention for First Responders and Small Departments: EMS1072 CD
This Power Point course discusses the National Workshop on America Burning Revisited. 
Prevention and Mitigation Advocacy for Small Department Responders: TK0075 CD
The second in a series of outreach prevention/mitigation courses ideally suited to the needs of America´s smallest departments in communities serving several hundred to several thousand populations.  The first in this series, Fire Prevention for First Responders and Small Departments (FPSD), sought to create a "passion for prevention" on the part of operationally oriented fire suppression personnel.  It continues to receive rave reviews from participants all across the United States.
Marketing Fire Prevention in Your Community: TK0076 CD
Marketing Fire Prevention in Your Community is the third in a series of prevention and mitigation courses geared toward the needs of small communities and rural departments. The first in this series is a motivational course to create passion for prevention in fire suppression personnel. 
Weapons of Mass Destruction: TK0083 CD
List of training for first responders in the newly developed Weapons of Mass Destruction Basic Awareness Training CD-ROM set.  This course is designed to provide a basic understanding of WMD, the threat of terrorism, and appropriate response.
Instructor I Distance Learning Program: CD
A NFPA Instructor I student, upon successful completion of this course, shall be able to deliver instruction effectively from a prepared lesson plan, effectively use instructional aids and evaluation instruments; adapt lesson plans given unique requirements of the students; organize the learning environment given a learning situation; and comply with record-keeping requirements.
The program is divided into two parts.  The first part is a self-directed learning component that the student completes at home or during available hours at the fire station.  The second part is a classroom-training component in which the student learns to apply the concepts presented in the self-directed portion of the program.  The classroom components allow for supervised evaluation as well as an opportunity for the student to demonstrate competency in performance-based objectives.
Live Fire Guidelines:  CD
For the purpose of this document, “Live-Fire Training” shall consist of any fire extinguishment exercise, smoke drill, extinguisher training, and fire/arson training involving actual fire. Smoke drills and fire investigation exercises are included due to the potential of becoming “uncontrollable.”
This document contains recommended procedures for training fire suppression personnel engaged in any live fire conditions. It is a basic system that can be adapted to local conditions to serve as a standard mechanism for live-fire training.
Procedures for live-fire training involving flammable liquid, vehicles, vegetation, LPG, or any other type of burn should follow the same guideline.
Live-fire training is an excellent means of applying skills learned in a classroom or drill ground to an actual fire situation under semi-controlled conditions. While this type of training provides the highest level of realism, it obviously carries the hazards of firefighting operations at an actual emergency. Live fire training evolutions must be carefully planned and closely supervised by qualified instructional personnel. The information contained in this document is designed to allow for the highest level of safety while allowing local organizations some flexibility to utilize independent judgment based on local situations and the level of training to be accomplished.
Pumper Operator: CD
The Driver/Operator training classes meet all job performance requirements found within NFPA 1002. Driver and Pumper Operator were designed as stand alone classes and are certified through DPSST.  The Driver class requires approximately 16 hours of student contact time (depending on size of class), 10 hours of classroom and 6 hours of practical exercises. The class contains laws and policies specific to the State of Oregon. 
The Pumper Operator class requires approximately 32 hours of student contact time (depending on size of class), 24 hours of classroom and 8 hours of practical exercises. It has been found to work best when teaching Pump Construction and Operation I, Hydraulics I, and Water Supply, followed by 4 hours of practical exercises the first weekend and doing Pump Operation II, Hydraulics II, and Sprinklers and Standpipes, followed by 4 hours of practical the second weekend.
