Lahaina, HI - WMTA ANNOUNCES 1st Meeting of 2018 for HHARP – “This is Not a Drill”
Please be reminded that the next West Maui Community Disaster Planning Meeting Scheduled for Wednesday, January 17, 2018 at the West Maui Senior Center, 788 Pauoa St, Lahaina at 5:30 p.m.
Guest speaker this month will be General Bruce Oliveira, Hawaii State Department of Defense, Community Programs Director on the topic of Developing a Community Emergency Plan.
The WMTA is working with the Maui Emergency Management Agency, The Pacific Disaster Center, and the State Emergency Management Agency on developing a customized disaster plan designed to meet West Maui’s specific needs. The isolation from the Island’s major hospital and airport, due to frequent road closures, fires and flooding, have highlighted the need for special preparedness planning – seems that “missile launch” may be added?
The Hawaii Hazards Awareness & Resilience Program (HHARP) is a series of monthly workshops, presented by subject-matter experts, to provide education for hazard understanding and offer tools and information resources to guide community mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery planning.
These meetings are free and open to the public.
The West Maui Taxpayers Association invites you to join us and be a part of the solution to plans that may well be the reason why lives will be saved when disasters strike. Please put these meetings on your calendar and plan to attend!
