Hawaii Wildfire visited a packed room of twenty-eight Waikoloa Senior Center members on the morning of October 20th to hold a Ready, Set, Go! Wildfire Preparedness Workshop. Planning Assistant Ilene Grossman filled in for Executive Director Elizabeth Pickett to help present with Outreach Coordinator Pablo Beimler to an attentive and engaging group. The presentation rounded off with a great Q & A that involved discussions about community fuels reduction funding opportunities and the potential to make Waikoloa a Firewise Community. We'd like to thank the Waikoloa Senior Center for a great opportunity to spread the word about wildfires in Hawaii and what we can all do to protect our communities from wildfires.
