The IAFF Center of Excellence for Behavioral Health Treatment and Recovery is a one-of-a-kind addiction treatment facility specializing in PTSD for IAFF members – and IAFF members only – who are struggling with addiction, PTSD other related behavioral health challenges to receive the help they need in taking the first steps toward recovery. It is a safe haven for members to talk with other members who have faced or overcome similar challenges.

The Federal Firefighters of Hawaii prides itself as being the largest Federal Local in the IAFF.  In 2009, Local F263 hit a record 310 members out of a possible 312.    Every employee matters and we believe in the Union philosophy of “strength in numbers and greater strength in greater numbers”!  Our priorities are fighting for our rights under the Collective Bargaining Agreement, fighting for overtime pay due to our members under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), keeping our work environment safe from hazards identified by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and promoting “Brotherhood” through community events.
