Kaiser donates $3,500 to Fire Department


Kaiser Permanente Hawaii has announced $3,500 in grant funding to the Hawaii Fire Department.

Funds will be used to purchase digital camera equipment, which will allow the HFD to better document injury occurrence at traffic accidents and assist medical emergency professionals in their assessment and treatment of victims.

“We are very appreciative of Kaiser Permanente Hawaii for responding to the needs of our community with this generous donation,” Fire Chief Darren Rosario said. “With the high incidence of traffic collisions and fatalities on the island, having cameras that are waterproof and shockproof immediately available to our emergency personnel, gives us the ability to bring the accident scene to the emergency room and allow responding staff to treat victims more efficiently. This type of high-technology camera will also endure the rigor of crash sites.”

Seventeen cameras were purchased with Kaiser Permanente Hawaii’s donation and placed in all 15 of the county’s Advanced Life Support Ambulances and two HFD command vehicles.
