Wildfire Preparedness from Mauka to Makai - Natural Resource Manager Training

Above: HWMO presented a thorough workshop for land managers from various agencies and organizations.

Hawaii Wildfire not only provide workshops to community members, but we also hold trainings specifically targeted towards natural resource managers. 

On April 10th, HWMO partnered with South Kohala Coastal Partnership and University of Hawaii Sea Grant to hold a training that outlined the basics of fire behavior and the tools natural resource managers can use to change fire behavior and minimize the threat of wildfires to their areas.

A number of different agencies and groups were present at the training, all interested in learning how to better prepare their lands for wildfire: UH Sea Grant, South Kohala Coastal Partnership, Hawaii County Planning, Mauna Kea Watershed Alliance, Queen Liliʻuokalani Trust, The Nature Conservancy, Vetiver Farms Hawaii, and the Kanehoa Subdivision Firewise Committee.

If you would like us to hold a training with your agency or community group, please don't hesitate to contact us: http://www.hawaiiwildfire.org/contact-1/.
