The Hadron Calorimeter of LHCb is a sampling iron-scintillator calorimeter
of 5.6 \lambda_I thickness. The light readout is performed with WLS fibres running
along the scintillating tile edges. Its expected performance ant its current
commissioning will be reviewed.
In addition, the self-calibration system, based on Cs137 radioactive source
embeddedinto the calorimeter structure, aimed at obtaining an absolute calibration
withprecision of about 2% will be discussed.
