Message from Hanford Fire Department Chief:
“The Hanford Fire Department had its origins during those dark days of World War II when our country needed to develop a weapon system ahead of the Axis Powers and the 586 square miles now managed by the Department of Energy became the Hanford Nuclear Reservation. Throughout the decades since the men and women of the Hanford Fire Department have protected critical facilities, processes, and personnel to the highest standards of the fire service. We are a progressive department embracing technology and best practices to ensure a constant state of readiness. Our people are our most critical asset and they are engaged daily in finding ways to make HFD better. We are a proactive, all-hazards emergency response agency tasked not only with protecting the Hanford Site; but also, to assisting our local mutual aid partners in protecting people and property throughout the Tri-Cities area and south-central Washington. Every day in every way, we are proud to be HFD”- Norbert W. Kuhman, Fire Chief
