The Ready, Set, Go! wildfire preparedness message is important for just about anyone who is remotely impacted by wildfire. We've done workshops with a number of groups including Kaʻū Coffee Growers Cooperative, Waikoloa Senior Center, various Rotary Club chapters, and so on.
Our latest workshop brought us to Kailua-Kona where we met with a group of resident-property-managers for the Hawaiiana Management Company on May 7th. The property management company owns a number of properties throughout the west side of Hawaii Island and across the State.
As part of a morning of training for the managers, we gave a presentation about the Ready, Set, Go! program and how the managers could use these tools for their own properties and forward the message on to their residents.
We had a couple managers jump on the idea of using Firewise native plants in their areas and asked us for more information on how to get started.
