Presenting at Duke's with a reminder that vegetation in the forefront can be flammable especially during drier days in Lihue.

Yes, even the Garden Isle has its fair share of wildfire issues — under the right conditions, anywhere, regardless of how “wet” they are can burn. This was one of the points Pablo Beimler, HWMO Community Outreach Coordinator, worked to get across on May 12 at Duke’s Canoe Club in Lihue. Twenty Rotarians from Rotary Club of Kauai tuned in as Pablo shared maps of Kauai’s wildfire history and stories from the Kokee Fire of 2012. He plugged the ReadySetGo!, Firewise Communities programs and encouraged attendees to participate in Wildfire Preparedness Month this May. We thank Rotary Club of Kauai for the hospitality and the complimentary meal provided by Duke’s. Also, it didn’t hurt to have a beautiful background and cool winds to the presentation (pictured in banner above).
