Kauai's Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) is long-due for an update. Hawaii Wildfire is leading the charge in conjunction with its partners on Kauai to update the plan with fresh input and new hazard assessments and maps.
On February 23rd at the Lihue fire station, Elizabeth Pickett and Ilene Grossman gathered with 12 agency representatives from Kauai Fire Department (including Chief Robert Westerman), KFD fire prevention, Civil Defense, and DLNR Division of Forestry and Wildlife (including the district manager, protection foresters, and outreach and education staff members.)
Attendees at the meeting kicked off the update process by providing their wildfire concerns and recommended projects and actions regarding wildfire hazard mitigation.
Find out how you can participate in the CWPP process by joining the upcoming meetings at the end of March.
