Senator Donovan Dela Cruz (S Dist. 22 - Mililani Mauka, Waipi‘o Acres, Wheeler, Wahiawa, Whitmore Village, portion of Poamoho) and Representative Lei Learmont (H Dist. 46 - Wahiawa, Whitmore Village, Launani Valley) are sponsoring a town hall forum for the community to learn more about what the state is doing to educate and prepare the public for emergencies. The Hawai‘i Emergency Management Agency, City and County of Honolulu’s Community Emergency Response Team and the Hawai‘i Department of Education have been invited to speak at the forum so families can learn how to prepare for various scenarios and to answer questions. The event is free and open to the public.
The meeting is scheduled for Thursday April 12th, at the Wahiawa District Park in the Hale Koa Room beginning at 7:00 p.m.
“On January 13, 2018, there was a warning of a nuclear missile attack coming to Hawai‘i.” said Representative Lei Learmont, “The Town Hall meeting is to help educate the community about what to do in the event of a missile attack. With the revelation that it was a false alarm, this provided an opportunity to more closely evaluate our emergency preparedness; as well as other potential emergencies like hurricanes and tsunamis.”
“I want to ensure that the community has adequate information so they are prepared and safe in the event of any emergency.” said Senator Donovan M. Dela Cruz. “Natural hazards and other various scenarios can happen at any time so the residents need to know how to prepare for the worst and protect their families.”
For questions about the community meeting, please call the Office of Representative Learmont at 808-586-6700.
