Hawaii Fire Department Earns Accreditation

The Navy just announced last week that Commander, Navy Region Hawaii (CNRH)Federal Fire Department (FFD) was presented with an accreditation plaque at the CNRH FFD headquarters building on Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam.

The plaque was presented to the CNRH FFD for being recognized as an accredited agency by the Commission on Fire Accreditation International.

According to navy.mil, "The accreditation was awarded to CNRH FFD for demonstrating that all 298 performance indicators, 84 core competencies and applicable criteria had been met and received a credible rating."

There are more than 250 personnel assigned to CNRH FFD. CNRH FFD is one of only three Navy fire departments and one of 16 Department of Defense fire departments that have received accreditation.
