A guest speaker will include one of the forecasters from the Central Pacific Hurricane Center.

The West Maui Taxpayer Association is working with the Maui Emergency Management Agency, The Pacific Disaster Center, and the State Emergency Management Agency to develop 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.

The Hawaiian Hazards and Resilience Program 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.
