Hawaii Wildfire Summit
Collaborating Across Hawaii and the Pacific for Summit to Sea Wildfire Protection
Mauna Lani Bay Hotel and Bungalows, South Kohala Coast, Hawaiʻi Island
From just starting to consider wildfire as an issue that impacts your work or home to having spent years in the fire service,
the Hawaii Wildfire Summit is for you!
The Hawaii Wildfire Summit is a gathering of fire professionals, resource managers, community members, and more for wildfire-focused workshops and trainings.
Who should attend the Hawaii Wildfire Summit?
Anyone who lives or works in a wildfire-prone environment.
Presentations, workshops, and trainings will follow tracts related to wildfire hazard reduction in and around communities, as well toward natural and cultural resource protection from summit to sea. The Hawaii Wildfire Summit is designed to bring together a diverse audience to become apprised of best practices and innovations in wildfire protection, discuss lessons learned, and to provide a space that invites collaboration and coordination toward next steps in Hawaii and the Pacific.
Over the years, HWMO has come to understand that wildfire-related challenges are faced by a wide array of professionals and citizens, including more than just those focused on emergency response. While the summit program is informative and highly valuable for fire professionals, the offerings are also targeted toward other efforts and people that deal with wildfire, such as riparian and marine conservation, cultural resource protection, the visitor industry, planning professionals, and community groups.
When is the NFPA training and when is the actual Hawaii Wildfire Summit?
The NFPA Assessing Structure Ignition Potential From Wildfire Training will take place on the two days before the summit begins Monday April 30- Tuesday May 1, 2018. This training is limited to 40 participants, so register early! The full Hawaii Wildfire Summit will take place May 2- May 4, 2018.
I'm confused about the ticket availability. It looks like ticket purchases cut off sooner than one would expect.
The tickets follow a graduated pricing scale, rising in price as the event gets closer. Depending on when you register, you will see tickets priced as follows with the following cut-off dates:
- Last Minute: Apr 23, 2018 6pm- May 2, 2018 8am-- $400
- One-Day Only: You choose which day, May 2-4, 2018: $150
How do I secure my hotel room? What are the rates?

If you are familiar with this resort, this is an amazing deal. Register as soon as possible to take advantage of the special rates we have secured. Non-block rooms are much more costly! The rates are available for three days before and after the Hawaii Wildfire Summit.
