                OK, I'll bite (I know I should not ask). What does CAH mean?

                Here it is FEO (Fire Equipment Operator).

                  We also have APO - Apparatus Pump Operator.




                  About CAH: The first word is "Certified".

                  Any guesses on the rest?



                  Hint: It is usually an Officer above the rank of Capt.
