Wildfires are a growing health and safety concern all across the state and have many impacts to our communities, businesses, infrastructure, watersheds, and cultural and nearshore resources.

In preparation for an unusually busy January through March for wildfires due to predicted El Niño-related drought conditions, Hawaii Wildfire Management Organization, is hosting this free and family-friendly educational “ReadySetGo!” Wildfire Preparedness Workshop.

Learn how to use proper landscaping techniques and home structure modifications to protect your family and property from wildfire and to work as a community towards the common goal of fire protection. If you join the workshop and are from a nationally-recognized Firewise Community, your time at the workshop can be counted as volunteer hours towards your community’s wildfire risk reduction investment requirement.

HWMO will also share information on how to develop a clear, achievable family emergency plan, what actions to take during a wildfire, and proper evacuation procedures. Each attendee will also receive a free copy of the ReadySetGo! Hawaii Wildland Fire Action Guide, which can be used as a step-by-step tool for carrying out the recommended actions.

As an added bonus and opportunity to meet other proactive community members, HWMO will be hosting a make-your-own-taco potluck for attendees during the event. HWMO will provide tortillas, meat, guacamole, and salsa. Please bring your favorite taco toppings (beans, rice, grilled veggies, cheese, or tomatoes), non-alcoholic beverage, or a creative dish to fit the taco theme.

Delicious food to go along with sharing ideas/updates/partnering opportunities for 2019 to better protect our communities from wildfire? Definitely worth joining us for!
