***POSTPONED to MAY 14, 2020*** Community Meeting - April 6, 2020 on Business Continuity Planning for Pandemic Events
***POSTPONED to MAY 14, 2020***
PRESS RELEASE – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
A CALL TO ACTION!
The West Maui Taxpayers Association, Inc. (WMTA), is continuing to advocate for Emergency Planning for our Isolated Community with elevated concerns prompted by the threats associated with the CoronaVirus.
Failing to plan is planning to fail has been an axiom taken to heart in our isolated community when emergencies occur. We are subject to unprecedented challenges to receive acute life saving care and all too often have suffered tragic outcomes too painful to describe.
In emergencies, our options are limited and our challenges heighted by the threat of the corona virus threat. It’s already a serious risk to live in West Maui over an hour away from access to an Emergency Room for life saving acute care. It’s obvious that this new threat illustrates things are worse when pandemic healthcare threats present themselves.
We have scheduled an community meeting event with an Expert on Pre-pandemic planning and preparations on Monday, April 6that the West Maui Kanoa Senior Center at 5pm. Dr. Dennis Terpin, an Expert in Emergency Planning. He has planned a special follow up Business Continuity Planning workshop for Pandemic Events the WMTA will sponsor the following day on April 7, 2020 from 8 am to 12 Noon; to help you to develop your own Pandemic Policy using a template he will provide to all who register for it by contacting him at www.Safety1hawaii.com. (Info. - Dennis Terpin at Ua446@aol.com – 630-699-7171)
