A prior scheduled meeting organized by the West Maui Taxpayers Association, Inc. has been postponed and rescheduled due to elevated concerns prompted by the threats associated with Coronavirus.
The meeting, originally planned for April 6, will be pushed to Thursday May, 14, 2020 at 5 p.m. at the West Maui Kaunoa Senior Center. The community meeting event features Dr. Dennis Terpin, an Expert in Emergency Planning.
“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 lifesaving care and all too often have suffered tragic outcomes too painful to describe,” according to a WMTA message.
“In emergencies, our options are limited and our challenges heighted by the threat of the coronavirus 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,” the WMTA said.
