FEMA Site Visits

Representatives from FEMA visited with HWMO to review sites for potential FEMA funded wildfire mitigation projects. HWMO has applied for funding from FEMA to install firebreaks and diptanks for fire suppression helicopters and trucks throughout the high fire risk regions of West Hawaii. 

As seen in the pictures, FEMA reps and HWMO board members visited the potential project sites and reviewed pictures of firebreak sites with Peter Hackstedde of Puako Community Association.
